Ooredoo’s executive team has been recognised regionally and internationally by the Institutional Investor Research Group at its recent 2019 awards ceremony. The company’s IR efforts were also recognised at the Middle East Investor Relations Association (Meira) Annual Conference and Awards.
Results published by Institutional Investor Magazine confirmed that Ooredoo was awarded the special designation of ‘Most Honoured Company’ in the 2019 Emerging Emea Executive Team awards given to just 44 companies that earned at least two top rankings in the main research categories.
The Institutional Investor Research Group is a leading international business-to-business publisher that supplies journalism, newsletters, and research, as well as running industry conferences, seminars and training courses.
This year’s Emerging Emea Executive Team award considerations saw more than 12,000 buy- and sell-side professionals cast votes to nominate more than 990 executives from nearly 400 companies across more than 20 sectors in a number of different categories.
The 2019 poll results independently confirmed Ooredoo as one of the best executive teams in the Emea region, recognising the company’s outstanding communication and investor outreach based on specific performance metrics compared to its competitors and peers in its sector.
Ooredoo has also won a host of awards at the Meira Annual Conference and Awards, including Best Corporate for Investor Relations — Qatar, Best Investor Relations Professional — Qatar, and ranking Andreas Goldau and Sarah Ibrahim al-Sayed in the top two positions. Ooredoo also came third for the Best IR Website.
The Middle East Investor Relations Association is considered the largest IR event in the Mena. It was held this year under the theme ‘IR Matters: The Age of Engagement’, recognising the importance of all stakeholders who play an essential role in the IR landscape and reflecting the importance of IR in responding to changes in market structure, regulation, and technology.
The Meira’s 2019 IR Awards scheme was conducted in partnership with Extel Survey and based on the results of the 2019 Mena Extel Survey. Through this partnership, Extel supports MEIRA’s efforts in institutionalising the IR function and promoting best practice in IR in the region.
Ooredoo Group CEO Sheikh Saud bin Nasser al-Thani said: “We’re very pleased to have been recognised for our investor relations efforts for the fourth year in a row and are delighted to accept these rewards on behalf of our executive team, and thank them for their hard work and dedication. Providing timely and useful information to our shareholders and analysts has always been a priority for Ooredoo.
“Our investor relations team is meticulous about ensuring the market is always informed of our developments and events in a reliable, consistent, fair, and transparent manner. We’re continuing with our commitment towards best practice disclosure and look forward to maintaining our good work in the coming years.”
Earlier this year, Ooredoo Group has reclaimed Qatar Stock Exchange’s overall award for excellence in IR as Sheikh Saud bagged the first-ever QSE IR award for the best CEO.
