The ranking acknowledges the dedicated effort Attacq puts into nurturing relationships with its investor community.
Attacq is proud to announce that it has been awarded third place in the mid-cap companies’ category for the inaugural Intellidex Top Investor Relations Survey. This accolade represents the extensive effort and thought Attacq has put into building strong and transparent relationships with its investor community and continuously seeking ways to enhance its quality of engagement and reporting.
Investors, as providers of capital, are a crucial part of any listed company’s stakeholder universe. Therefore, upholding best practice and world-class investor relations can contribute to a listed entity’s success. It is imperative to have such barometers to assess the market’s perception of a business and indicate the achievements or shortcomings in terms of the quality of engagement with investors and analysts.
Attacq Head of Investor Relations, Brenda Botha, said, “Attacq prides itself in consistent, meaningful and open engagement with all stakeholders. We are delighted to see that the analyst community recognises the value and effort we put into establishing and deepening our relationships with them and the initiatives to uphold our reputation.”
Intellidex surveyed the analyst community on both the buy and sell-side to find out how well they think South Africa’s listed companies are handling their investor relations. Companies are assessed on factors such as the accessibility of management, the quality of the integrated annual report, the ethics of the company’s investor relations professionals, and the timing and clarity of market communications. Attacq is delighted to have been regarded so highly in the eyes of the analyst community across these aspects.
Since listing on the JSE in 2013, Attacq has invested the appropriate time and resources to ensure its investor relations function is as effective and impactful as possible by providing key information to the market to help them make a more informed investment decision. Therefore, ultimately garnering investor support for future growth. “Investor relations has evolved since we entered capital markets. As a result, we continuously look to improve our engagements with our investors and analysts to provide more frequent and transparent communication. With such a dynamic and competitive landscape, Attacq has made it a point to maintain strong and positive relationships with the analyst community and wider market. We are grateful for this recognition and are committed to continuously strive to serve our internal interest in line with those of our shareholders,” concludes Attacq Chief Financial Officer, Raj Nana.
