IR Office is Awarded the Highest Honor in the〝2018 Internet IR Awards”
Each year, investor relations support services firm Daiwa Investor Relations Co. Ltd. evaluates the websites of listed companies utilizing proprietary criteria based on the latest IR industry trends, relevant laws, and internet technology trends. The firm then confers awards on the companies that achieve exceptional scores. This award is the longest-running IR website evaluation and commendation institution of its kind in Japan, and serves as a benchmark for website quality. Sojitz’s IR website earned high scores for its ease of navigation and the completeness of its financial data, resulting in Sojitz receiving the highest honor for the 3rd year in a row (among nine companies in total that received this honor in 2018).
To meet increasing information disclosure demands due to new fair disclosure rules and other legislation, companies are relying on websites more and more to convey a wide-range of information in a timely manner. With this in mind, Sojitz’s Investor Relations Office will keep working to further improve its information disclosure practices.
