BEIJING & RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - June 18, 2012 - Lenovo, the world’s second largest PC company, received top rankings across six categories, including “Best Investor Relations,” in Institutional Investor’s second annual All-Asia Executive Team rankings, released on June 14, 2012. The report – published here: http://www.institutionalinvestor.com/Research/3755/Most-Honored-Companies.html -- is an annual ranking of Asian companies and executives based on a survey of 935 money managers and investment professionals at some 500 buy-side firms, and approximately 490 sell-side analysts from 75 institutions across Asia (excluding Japan).
Institutional Investor criteria allowed participants to nominate up to four CEOs, CFOs, IR professionals and companies in each sector. All votes were weighted by place and aggregated to produce two distinct rankings (buy side, sell side) for Best CEO, Best CFO, Best IR Professional and Best IR Company. To be eligible, a company must be incorporated in Asia (excluding Japan) and traded on a corresponding Asian exchange.
In addition to being named one of the “Best IR Companies,” Lenovo and its key executives ranked highly across a number of other categories including:
- Best Technology/Hardware Company CEO: Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Yuanqing Yang, Lenovo
- Best Technology/Hardware Company CFO: Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Wong Wai Ming, Lenovo
- Best Technology/Hardware IR Professional: Vice President of Investor Relations, Gary Ng, Lenovo
- Best Hong Kong Technology/Hardware Company
- Second Most Honored Company
This achievement comes days after Lenovo was named one of “The World’s Most Reputable Companies” by the Reputation Institute’s 2012 Global RepTrak™ 100, a survey of more than 100,000 consumers that assesses the reputations of the world’s most prominent companies.
