Fair and Consistent Disclosure and Communication

We are committed to fair disclosure of material information to all market participants in compliance with all applicable securities laws.

Public disclosure

Our Company is subject to rules and regulations that prohibit the disclosure of material information to securities professionals and investors in our equity or debt securities before such information is disclosed to the general public. Information is “material” if there is a significant likelihood that a reasonable investor would consider it important in making a decision to buy or sell our Company’s securities or if it could reasonably be expected to have a substantial effect on the market price of our Company’s securities. Information is “nonpublic” if it has not previously been publicly disclosed in a way that is designed to provide broad, non-exclusionary distribution to the public.

To ensure compliance with these rules and regulations, only the limited group of persons listed below have authority to speak on behalf of the Company with securities professionals and investors in the Company’s equity or debt securities:

  • The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Liberty Global plc
  • The Chief Executive Officer and President of Liberty Global plc
  • The Senior Vice President, Investor Relations & Corporate Communications of Liberty Global plc
  • The Co-CFO, Principal Financial Officer of Liberty Global plc
  • Other people who have been authorized or requested by any of the foregoing persons to speak to securities professionals and investors on behalf of the Company.

These authorized spokespersons are required to read, understand and comply with the Liberty Global Disclosure and Communications Policy. If a securities analyst or investor requests information from you, even if the request for information is informal, do not respond to the request unless you are one of the authorized spokespersons listed above. Instead, refer the person to our Investor Relations Department.

If you believe that material nonpublic information may have been disclosed to a securities professional or investor in our Company’s equity or debt securities, you must immediately contact your Compliance Officer or Legal Department or a member of the Liberty Global Group Legal Department. Steps to protect our Company and the disclosing person may still be available.

Communication with the media

It is our Company’s policy to publicly disclose material information before discussion with individuals representing the media. Unsolicited inquiries from press or other media representatives should be forwarded or directed to the Corporate Communications Department. Under no circumstances should you attempt to respond to such inquiries without prior authorization from the Corporate Communications Department. Interviews granted to the press or other media may only be given under the supervision of the Corporate Communications Department and are subject to receipt of prior approval from the Senior Vice President, Investor Relations & Corporate Communications of Liberty Global plc.

All press or other media releases must be coordinated through the Corporate Communications Department. The Corporate Communications Department must receive prior notification of all country specific releases and must be copied on the final release.

Public communications

You are not permitted to disclose Company information, confidential or not, outside of appropriate work channels. This would include, for example, disclosure of Company information in on-line chat rooms, on websites or in “blogs”. The unauthorized disclosure of Company information, or making of public statements which reflect poorly on the Company or you as a Company representative, may result in disciplinary action.
