The nomination confirms the success of HiQ’s long-term commitment to provide people and companies with the right information in the right way.
On 22 November Regi will be awarding a number of prizes following its extensive survey of IR Nordic Markets. Based on the result of replies to a questionnaire sent out earlier in the year by Regi to around 700 analysts, HiQ has been nominated in the “Company of the Year” category for Mid Cap companies. HiQ’s investor relations work has been examined by the analysts that follow HiQ in terms of the perceived quality of, for example, the company’s homepage, annual report, interim reports, IR meetings and the level of competence among those who hold leading positions within the organisation.
“We are, of course, extremely proud to have been nominated for the prize. It has always been important to us to ensure that we provide the market with clear, correct information about HiQ. This nomination enhances our already strong brand,” says Fredrik Malm, CFO and IR Director at HiQ.
Since HiQ was listed on the stock market in 1999 the company has received various prizes and awards. When Swedish business weekly Veckans Affärer awarded a prize for “Best IT consulting company of the Year” HiQ won the honour several years in succession. HiQ has also previously won Regi’s prizes for Best Company, President and IR Director on the Nasdaq OMX Mid Cap exchange. Last year HiQ won the prize for Best IT Project in Finland together with its customer, Kuusakoski.
“Winning prizes like this gives us a great incentive, and we have already amassed quite a collection of them over the years. This year we have been nominated for the Swedish Design Prize, won the Cut the Wire Award, and have now been nominated for Regi’s prestigious Company of the Year prize. We take our listing agreement extremely seriously and it always makes us very happy when we see that our work is appreciated by the analysts,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.
