Communication of global companies with the capital market is a very actual topic and becomes more and more important nowadays. A good communication is necessary for all companies listed an the stock exchange.
I wrote about this topic because firstly communication in general is interesting for me and secondly since a long time I was fascinated by the capital market and by the facts that a company has from one day to the other more or less value and that people make a lot of money by following and analysing information of global companies.
