- Investor Relations (e.g. complete flow of information, availability, website information, financial calendar and road shows)
- Strategy and corporate management (clarity and level of detail of the strategy, accuracy of forecasts, risk notices), and
- market-based factors (share price performance and liquidity of the share in 2008).
