As part of every AGM, the shareholders have the option to comment or ask questions. This year, the comments came from both larger and small investors who asked about a wide variety of topics, ranging from the current building project at Headquarters to 2018 results and expectations for 2019.
Investors also commended DSV’s efforts, results and ability to grow. Claus Wiinblad, Head of Equities, from the Danish investor said:
“DSV has been through an amazing development over the past five years… DSV’s earnings per share increased 100 % - an absolutely impressive difference, which has been of great benefit to us as shareholders."
