When companies started publishing full AGM transcripts

January 14, 2023

This list tracks when companies first agreed to publish a full transcript of their AGM, an issue we have been pushing for the past couple of years.

Afterpay: see full 2021 AGM transcript which will be a first and last given the Square/Block takeover.

AGL Energy:
see full 2021 transcript.

AMP: without being asked, have been publishing AGM transcripts as a matter of course since 2018. See full history. Produced this 2021 AGM transcript.

ANZ: promised to publish a transcript for the first time in 2021 but it took several months to materialise and after a reminder in April 2022, here it is.

ASX: set new ground with this 2021 transcript.

Australian Ethical: produced first ever transcript in 2021.

Boral: produced a first ever AGM transcript in 2020 but then ditched it in 2021. See full history of AGMs showing webcast archives started in 2015.

Brambles: see 2020 transcript, although they went backwards by not producing one in 2021.

CIMIC: read 2021 AGM transcript, which was a first and their last before being privatised.

Collins Foods: whilst the AGM was held in September 2022 and the first transcript and webcast didn't appear until January 2023, at least we finally got it.

Crown Resorts: started with this 2020 transcript and backed it up again with this 21 page transcript in 2021. They only produced their first webcast and audio archive in 2018 as this full history of AGMs demonstrates.

Domino's Pizza: produced this first ever AGM transcript in 2021.

Endeavour Group: demerged from Woolworths in 2020 and produced this first transcript after its inaugural AGM in 2021.

Freedom Foods: started in 2021 with this transcript.

G8 Education: started in 2021 with this transcript.

Kathmandu: see full transcript in 2021 lodged with ASX. Not aware of any other company which has done that.

Lend Lease: started in 2021 with this transcript.

Insurance Australia Group: have been publishing AGM transcripts since first started with this effort in 2003. See excellent back catalogue to 2000. Started webcast archiving in 2019 so looks like best practice in the market.

Mineral Resources: started in 2021 with this 26 page transcript picking up all the evangelising by billionaire CEO and founder Chris Ellison.

Mirvac: started in 2021 with this transcript of the November 18 AGM. Also see webcast of the 64 minute meeting.

Nine Entertainment: started in 2021 with this full transcript of proceedings. Thank you, Peter Costello.

Westpac: produced their first ever full AGM transcript in 2020 but this very handy AGM archive goes back to 2000 and shows they've been producing AGM webcast archives for many years. Followed up with this 95 page transcript in 2021.

Webjet: started in 2022 with this full transcript of AGM proceedings. Thank you chair Roger Sharp.

Woolworths: started in 2019 and backed it up with this 2020 AGM transcript, plus again in 2021 with this transcript.
