BEIJING, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- PR Newswire announced today that it has been selected by CFO World, China's prestigious financial magazine, as a recipient of its "China CFO's Most Trusted Investor Relations Management Services" award.
The award, part of CFO World's 2009 "Top 100 Most Trusted Service Provider" poll, recognizes PR Newswire's superior disclosure and investor communications services, as well as efforts to help Chinese companies listed on the various exchanges around the world with their financial and media communication activities. A committee of chief financial officers and media professionals chose PR Newswire as the award recipient after a three month process in which the group considered the merits of hundreds of service providers, including investment and merchant banks, law firms, auditors, securities agents, and IR agencies.
"We are honored to receive this award, which is an encouraging recognition for our team of some 60 people in the four offices we have in China," stated Ninan Chacko, CEO of PR Newswire. "A very important reason for our success in China is our continuous commitment to educate the market, meet the needs of our local clients and deliver services in the most accurate, efficient and credible manner. PR Newswire looks forward to expanding our investment in the China market with new product developments and continuing our efforts in market education by working more closely with our customers and partners."
