(marketingmagazine.com.my) – Media Prima was announced as Asiamoney’s Best Managed Company (Small Cap) across 13 Asian markets, yesterday.
The coveted recognition was the result of an extensive poll conducted earlier by the financial publication, inviting equities’ heads of research and financial analysts to nominate the best managed listed companies in Asia. The poll covered companies with market capitalisation under US$1 billion from 13 countries, including Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
At the same time, under Asiamoney’s Corporate Governance Poll 2016, Media Prima was voted Best for Disclosure and Transparency and Best for Corporate Social Responsibility categories in Malaysia.
Dato’ Sri Amrin Awaluddin, Group Managing Director of Media Prima shared “Media Prima has consistently been ranked amongst the best in Malaysia and the region for good corporate governance by the financial community in the Asiamoney polls. The recognition received at the 2016 polls is yet another tremendous achievement for the Group and is a tribute to the hard work and commitment of our board, management and employees. We remain committed to implement and practice the very best standards of corporate governance and responsibility while addressing the needs of our business ecosystem through various social responsibility based programmes”.
In the Asiamoney poll, nominated companies were evaluated based on several key factors, including product/service innovation, rising market share, leadership in industry, financial performance, consistency of performance, executive leadership and corporate governance.
In Malaysia during the 2013 Asiamoney polls, Media Prima was voted Best Overall for Corporate Governance, Best for Disclosure and Transparency, Best for Responsibilities of Management and the Board of Directors, and Best for Investor Relations.
In 2014, Media Prima was again honoured in the Asiamoney Corporate Governance Poll when it won Best for Disclosure and Transparency as well as the Best for Investor Relations awards (in Malaysia).
Last year, Media Prima received similar recognition when named Commonwealth Media of the Year 2015 by the Commonwealth Businesswomen’s Network. This accolade followed UK-based publication Ethical Boardroom’s conferment of the Best Corporate Governance, Media Company, Asia 2015 was also awarded to Media Prima.
Asiamoney is a financial publication established in 1989 and is a division of global media group Euromoney Institutional Investor Plc., owned by the London-based Daily Mail and General Trust Group.
