UDG Healthcare are thrilled to announce that they have received the Best Investor Communication Award at the 2017 PLC Awards.

Held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Thursday 15 March 2018, the PLC Awards recognise the successes and achievements of quoted companies listed on the Main Market. UDG Healthcare was shortlisted along with five other listed organisations for the Best Investor Communication Award.

The award is decided through a voting panel and looks for effective communication with both professional and private investors and to current and potential shareholders. It looks for the use of two-way communication and utilising a full range of tools including the annual report, the website, attendance and hosting of investor events and social media.

Upon receiving the award, Keith Byrne, Head of Investor Relations, Strategy and Communications said, ‘I’m absolutely delighted that UDG Healthcare has been recognised as having best in class investor communications. Over the last number of years, we have focussed on ensuring that we are communicating our story in a clear and concise way to our investors. There is a real team approach to our Investor communications with leaders from across the organisation joining our roadshows to maximise the number of investors that we are able to meet. It is fantastic that this has been recognised.’

Brendan McAtamney, CEO, commented, ‘I’m really proud that we’ve received this prestigious award, to have been recognised for the quality of our content, broad interaction with the Investor community and creative execution is a testament to all of the hard work that goes into our Investor communications.’
