DP World won six awards at the 7th Annual IR Conference and Awards Ceremony in Dubai recently, including the ‘Best Company for Investor Relations, Middle East’ for the third consecutive year following a global survey of financial industry stakeholders.
Organised by The Middle East Investor Relations Association (MEIRA), the event recognises the region’s best performers in investor relations, as voted by investors and analysts in an independent Thomson Reuters Extel survey in which 18000 investment professionals across 80 countries took part. The global trade enabler carried off awards for Best Company for Investor Relations in the Middle East; Best Company for Investor Relations, UAE; Best Investor Relations by a CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem; Best Investor Relations Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Yuvraj Narayan; Best Investor Relations Executive, Redwan Ahmed; and Best Annual Report.
DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “Our consistency in winning these awards is evidence of our success and financial performance. The financial community recognises the major efforts we have made in our investor relations activity, providing clear and concise information in a professional manner. I am grateful for their ongoing support of our business and look forward to building on this important partnership which plays a key role in our global strategy and business plans.”
The DP World IR team built on their efforts from last year and hosted regular investor meetings in addition to working with both equity and fixed income analysts and investors to maintain strong access to capital markets. Additionally the team conducted numerous port tours and site visits at Jebel Ali Port in 2015 to demonstrate the long term growth potential of the flagship asset.
