GILDEMEISTER annual report is the MDAX winner​​​​​​​

Bielefeld. GILDEMEISTER Aktiengesellschaft’s annual report 2010 is the MDAX winner in the manager magazin rankings. Its exemplary transparency and open reporting earned GILDEMEISTER another award yesterday evening in Frankfurt.

The annual report 2010 impresses the jurors once again for its high level of transparency, clear language and inimitable design. The jurors particularly highlighted GILDEMEISTER’s good corporate governance and compliance that represents responsible and transparent corporate management and controlling throughout the group. GILDEMEISTER thereby fulfills the high demands for information of the capital market. The illustrations showcased the individual GILDEMEISTER segments of “Machine Tools“, “Services“ and “Energy Solutions“. The motto of the award-winning financial report ”Cooperation sustains innovation“underscores the group’s intensive cooperation with its Japanese partner, Mori Seiki.

For the 17th time, manager magazin has awarded prizes to the annual reports of listed stock corporations from Germany and Europe. The competition is independent as well as being the largest worldwide. A team of experts led by Prof. Jörg Baetge of the Institute of Financial Accounting and Auditing at the University of Munster, analysed annual reports from the DAX, MDAX, SDAX, TecDAX and Stoxx 50 stock exchanges as well as those of newcomers to the stock exchange.

In the overall ranking GILDEMEISTER achieved 3rd place of a total of 200 annual reports examined. The award-winning annual report is available at as an interactive version or as a download.
