Sojitz’s Investor Relations (IR) website received the Grand Prize at the 2020 Internet IR Awards for the fifth consecutive year.
The Internet IR Awards are hosted by Daiwa Investor Relations Co. Ltd., a consulting firm that provides investor relations support services. The awards evaluate the websites of listed companies based on the concept that IR websites are an important tool for corporations as they actively interact with investors.
Due to the spread of COVID-19, companies found it necessary to make adjustments to IR activities such as IR events and information disclosure practices. Daiwa Investor Relations modified its judgement criteria this year to include an evaluation of the quality of companies’ IR activities in response to the pandemic, and of other information important to investors such as sustainability-related content.
Of the 3,883 companies evaluated, only 7 received the honor of Grand Prize. Sojitz has continued to improve its IR website through expanded English content and greater information regarding dividends, resulting in Sojitz receiving the award’s highest commendation for the fifth consecutive year.
Sojitz will strive to further improve information disclosure practices and expand the company’s presence moving forward.
