1. Objective and principles
The key principles of the communication and disclosure of the Company are timeliness, consistency, impartiality, and transparency.
The purpose of the Company’s investor relations function is to support the fair value of Verkkokauppa.com’s financial instruments by providing the financial market with consistent, correct, relevant, and reliable information on the Company to ensure that capital market participants have transparent and clear a picture of the Company, its operations, objectives, strategy and financial situation. The aim is to guarantee that all market participants receive simultaneously the information that the Company communicates.
The primary communication channel for up-to-date information for all stakeholders is Verkkokauppa.com’s website (www.verkkokauppa.com). Verkkokauppa.com aims to provide on its website reliable and extensive information to enable investors to form an accurate understanding of the Company. The Company publishes also materials used in investor and analyst meetings on its website.
Verkkokauppa.com’s stock exchange releases are published through a professional news distribution service provider (which entail distribution to e.g. Nasdaq Helsinki and key media), as well as on the Company’s website where they will be made available in connection with the publication or other disclosure. The Company’s press releases are published to key media and on the Company’s website. Subscriptions for the Verkkokauppa.com’s releases can be made on the Company’s website. The releases are archived for five years and financial and other reports under regular disclosure obligation for ten years.
Verkkokauppa.com’s official reporting language is Finnish. The stock exchange releases and financial reports, which are published under the disclosure obligation, are published in Finnish and English.

During this time the representatives of the Company do not meet with the capital market representatives or give interviews or comment on the financial standing of the Company or the Company’s future outlook. The dates of the publication of the results and silent periods are disclosed on the investor calendar on the Company’s website.
If during a silent period, an event requires immediate disclosure, Verkkokauppa.com publishes the information without delay according to regulations regarding duty of disclosure and decides on a case-by-case basis whether to give interviews, such communication will be limited to the relevant event only.
