Del

NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PhosAgro and Growthpoint Properties are among several notable firms that took home leading positions across their respective sectors in Institutional Investor's inaugural ranking of the region's best chief executives, top CFOs, investor relations professionals, and investor relations companies.

More than 500 buy-side analysts, asset managers, and sell-side researchers at nearly 300 firms, managing an estimated $272 billion in equities in Emerging EMEA named the best chief executives, top CFOs, investor relations professionals, and investor relations companies across 12 business sectors.

Buy-side analysts, money managers and sell-side researchers at securities firms and financial institutions that cover the region identified up to four companies that excel in up to ten investor relations attributes including:

  • Senior executives are accessible
  • IR team is well informed and empowered to speak authoritatively on the company's behalf
  • Timely and appropriate level of financial disclosure
  • Responds quickly and thoroughly to requests
  • Most constructive conference calls
  • Highest quality of meetings through road shows/reversed road shows/conferences
  • Highest quality of corporate documents and investor kit materials
  • Best commitment to corporate governance
  • Delivers insight and useful reports on ESG/SRI metrics
  • Best website

"Investing in Emerging EMEA is not for the fainthearted, with economic and geopolitical uncertainties amongst some of the many challenges," said Amani Korayeim, Director Sales and Product Development All-EMEA. "But in Institutional Investor's inaugural survey of the global investment community, a strong phalanx of companies and leaders emerge who are excelling at cutting through the challenges, and sharing their companies' vision and strategy with investors." She adds, "Perhaps most encouraging, is the array of sectors and countries represented, from Russia to Egypt, Oil and Gas to Constructions & Real Estate all featuring strongly, suggesting that it really is the excellence of the teams in place to navigate through the uncertainty and engage investors. And lastly, in the absence of an objective quality measure of IR but an increasingly institutionalized IR function in the region, the Emerging EMEA Executive Team Survey results of Institutional Investor, will provide an independent vehicle to inform and benchmark companies' IR strategy and continue to help optimize their outreach."

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution.

This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
