• Frasers Centrepoint, Metro Pacific Investments, Security Bank and Thai Union Frozen Products to contest grand prix for mid-cap companies
• Concepcion Industrial, Garuda Indonesia, Krungthai Card and Precious Shipping are all up for grand prix for small-cap companies
The short lists for the upcoming IR Magazine Awards – South-East Asia 2015 have been announced and leading the way are CapitaLand, grand prix winner (large cap) in 2013, with six nominations and DBS Group, the grand prix (large cap) winner last year, with five nominations.
Closely behind them, there are three companies with four nominations each: KASIKORNBANK, winner of the best IR by a Thai company in each of the last three years; Metro Pacific Investments, last year’s winner of the award for best IR by a Philippine company; and Security Bank, a new entrant to the awards, also from the Philippines.
The winners will be announced on December 4 at an awards ceremony held at the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX).
The IR Magazine Awards – South-East Asia 2015 are decided solely by an independent survey of investors and analysts, all of whom are located in the region. Just as in IR Magazine’s other awards in Europe and the Americas, investors and analysts are asked to vote for their favorite company in each awards category. This year, 401 respondents took part in the survey. The four or five companies with the most votes in each category make the short list and the company with the most votes wins the award.
Votes for the awards also determine the IR Magazine South East Asia Top 25, the ranking of the best companies for IR in the region. The votes in each award category are added together and the company with the most votes is declared the top-ranked company in the area.
The latest rankings will be revealed in the IR Magazine Investor Perception Study – Asia 2015/2016, which will be published soon after the IR Magazine Awards & Conference – South-East Asia 2015 on December 4.
