AkzoNobel publishes 2009 Report on interactive website

AkzoNobel has today published the online version of its 2009 Report – the second year in a row that the company has combined its annual and sustainability reports. The printed version will be available during the week beginning March 8.

The dedicated website – which includes an E-reader download facility – contains full details of the company’s financial and sustainability performance. It also features a short welcome video by CEO Hans Wijers, who gives a brief overview of the 2009 performance and underlines the importance of sustainability to the company’s operations.

Visitors to the interactive site will discover an improved content structure, while new print and PDF managers have been introduced and data can now be compared with 2008. Other functionality includes intuitive navigation, customizable graphs and downloadable financial information in Excel format.

The company has also adjusted its financial calendar for 2010. The changes to the schedule are as follows:

Q1 results: published on Friday, April 23 (not Monday, April 26, as previously announced).
Q2 results: published on Friday, July 23 (not Monday, July 26, as previously announced).
Ex-dividend date of final dividend: changed to April 30, 2010, instead of May 3. As a result, the record date has also changed to May 4, 2010, instead of May 6.
