D&L Industries recognized as a Most Honored Company by Institutional Investor

October 09, 2017 – D&L Industries earned the designation of a Most Honored Company in Asia by New York-based Institutional Investor in its 2017 All-Asia Executive Team survey, as it ranked among the top in a list of over 2,500 Asian companies nominated for outstanding corporate leadership and investor relations.

This year’s survey results reflect the opinions of more than 3,900 investment professionals at 980 financial services firms. This includes buy-side analysts, money managers and sell-side researchers at securities firms and financial institutions that cover Asia. Respondents from the buy side manage approximately $1.5 trillion in Asian equities.

Companies were ranked based on various aspect of investor relations and corporate governance. These include having accessible senior executives, providing timely and appropriate financial disclosure, having a well informed and empowered IR team, responding quickly and thoroughly to requests, hosting the most constructive conference calls and meetings, and providing the highest quality corporate document and investor kit materials.

D&L Industries President & CEO Alvin Lao was recognized as the Best CEO in the Philippines. Meanwhile, the company’s investor relations program ranked number 3 in the country.  These awards earned D&L Industries the Most Honored Company recognition, which was given to 88 companies across Asia in 2017, including two other Philippine companies – Universal Robina and Metro Pacific Investments. 

Institutional Investor is a leading international business-to-business publisher, focused primarily on international finance. It is a trusted source for research and rankings among top analysts and portfolio managers in the financial industry.

“This is a wonderful achievement for the entire team,” Mr. Lao remarked, “which would not have been possible without the support of D&L’s management. We have the utmost respect for our minority shareholders and will continue our efforts to maintain an IR program that is engaging, informative and transparent.”
