Industrial Alliance Publishes its Annual Report and Mails the Information Circular for its Annual Meeting
Today, Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc. will begin mailing its 2006 Annual Report and Information Circular inviting shareholders and participating policyholders to attend the Company’s next annual general meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, May 2, 2007, at 2:00 p.m., at the Centre des congrès de Québec, 1000 René-Lévesque Boulevard East, in Quebec City.
The theme of Industrial Alliance’s 2006 Annual Report is A PARTNER YOU CAN TRUST. This theme is at the heart of the Company’s mission, which is to offer its clients and their family financial protection in the event of death, disability or illness and to help them achieve financial independence at retirement. The annual report also includes the Company’s bold new logo, inspired by the previous one, and which truly reflects its identity as a financial institution. In addition to the message from the Chairman of the Board and the President and Chief Executive Officer’s Report, the 2006 Annual Report contains a description of Industrial Alliance’s lines of business, management’s discussion and analysis and the 2006 consolidated financial statements.
The Information Circular contains information about the Company’s annual general meeting, including details concerning the election of the Company’s directors and the appointment of auditors for the current year.
The Annual Report and Information Circular are available in the Investor Relations/Financial Reports section of the Company’s website at www.inalco.com. These documents can also be obtained on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.
