NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — CapitaLand is in the running for eight awards at the IR Magazine Awards ‒ South East Asia 2012. This annual event ‒ now in its eighth year ‒ honors the leading exponents of investor relations in the region and takes place this year at Singapore Exchange on Thursday, December 6. For full short lists, click here.
Singaporean real estate developer CapitaLand is just ahead of a trio of Singaporean companies on seven short lists this year: DBS Group, StarHub and SingTel, which won five awards last year and is the current number one ranked company in South East Asia. This year, however, the traditionally dominant Singaporean companies face stiffer competition from other countries in South East Asia.
The main challenge is being fronted by CIMB Group, the Malaysian bank, which features on six short lists this year. All five of the aforementioned companies will battle it out for the grand prix for large-cap companies, setting up the possibility of a non-Singaporean company winning the top prize for the first time.
The IR Magazine Awards ‒ South East Asia 2012 are decided solely by an independent survey of investors and analysts, all of whom are located in the region. Just like 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, 436 respondents took part in the survey.
Votes for the awards also determine the IR Magazine South East Asia Top 25, the rankings of the best IR companies in the region. The votes in each award category are added together and the company with the most votes is declared the number one ranked company in the area. The latest rankings will be revealed in the IR Magazine Investor Perception Study ‒ Asia 2012/2013, which will be published soon after the IR Magazine Awards & Conference – South East Asia 2012 on December 6 in Singapore.
