At the presentation of the Vienna Stock Exchange Awards at Kursalon Wien on Tuesday night we were called to the stage twice to accept our distinctions – each for second place in the categories Journalism Award and Corporate Bond Award.The jury for the former is comprised of a group of selected financial journalists. According to the Vienna Stock Exchange and APA-Finance (the jury chair), the decisive criteria for presentation were, among other things, transparent and honest corporate communication, the preparation of press material, the design of the website as well as financial statements and not least the personal contact with journalists.
The winners of the Corporate Bond Award were chosen by a broadly representative jury from the Austrian Association for Financial Analysis and Asset Management (ÖVFA). The decisive criteria for this were the financial statements as well as the information and communication policies with respect to analysts.
We are delighted about the awards – and, of course, also view each second place as an incentive for next year!
