Would access to transcripts of company meetings (AGMs, EGMs, etc.) be useful in your research? If you are not a shareholder or don’t have inside contacts, this kind of information can be hard to come by. Unless, of course, you’re a Bloomberg user.
Bloomberg holds both details of and recordings for various events in listed companies’ calendars. Our subscription to Thomson One also provides events information, but not in the same detail. Read on for more information on both sources.
Search either using the <DSCO> function for company documents or <EVT> for events.
Using <EVT>, first choose your company and then, in the left-hand menu, limit by ‘Event Type’. AGMs and EGMs are listed – fairly logically – under ‘Shareholder Meetings’. As you can see, access is also available here to various other presentations and documents.
Depending on the company and the event, you may have access to transcripts, audio recordings or webcasts of the meeting.
Using the filings search as described in an earlier post, select the company you want to look for and ‘proxy’ as the type of filings to view relevant documents.
If you have any further questions on company documentation and how to find it, please contact MIRC.
