Heidelberg tops manager magazin's annual ranking of M-DAX companies for sixth time

Heidelberg, (PresseBox) - In its annual report ranking, business magazine manager magazin has rated once again the 2006/2007 Annual Report of Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) as the best on the M-DAX. This is now the sixth time that Heidelberg has been named the M-DAX winner. Heidelberg took second place in the overall ranking of around 200 annual reports from DAX, M-DAX, S-DAX, Tec-DAX and Stoxx 50. Heidelberg CFO Dirk Kaliebe, who accepted the award in Frankfurt, viewed the success this year as recognition for the continuity and quality of reporting through Heidelberg's annual financial statements.

Each year since 1995, Hamburg-based manager magazin has been analyzing the annual reports of the key companies listed on the stock exchange and evaluating them according to content, layout, and language. The manager magazin competition is the most comprehensive comparison of annual reports in Germany and one of the largest in the world.

Other international awards for Heidelberg's annual reports in the past testify to the company's innovative approach to content, design, and layout when preparing its annual report for the relevant target groups.

As well as covering the annual accounts, Heidelberg also uses an image theme for each of its annual reports. In the latest 2006/2007 report, several sections focus on the themes of "precision and customer orientation". The overarching theme encompasses a strategic area of the company and this year divides the 118 pages into clearly structured sections. For the last three years, Heidelberg has also designed its annual report to create a different look for the financial section and the management report, thereby providing a much clearer overview. State-of-the-art Heidelberg technologies - particularly in press and postpress - are regularly used to provide an effective and attractive finish to the report.
