Dr Eva Chan, Founding Chairman of HKIRA, said, "It has been another challenging year for business operators in most industries. IR professionals' role is increasingly important in keeping investors and the public abreast of the latest update of listed companies and their industries. Under the new normal, new forms of communication channels are supported by advanced technologies, to facilitate instant and transparent exchange of information. We are glad that the IR community was able to turn challenges into opportunities and we look forward to recognizing more listed companies with best practices at this year's Awards."

Last year, 167 award entries were received from listed companies, over 890 eligible voters and over 360 voting institutions participated in the voting, casting a total of more than 7,900 votes. 47 winners from various categories were recognized at the Awards. Among the winners, China Resources Beer (Holdings) Company Limited (stock code: 00291), Fortune Real Estate Investment Trust (stock code: 00778), and Xtep International Holdings Limited (stock code: 01368) were awarded Overall Best IR Company by company size - Large Cap, Mid Cap, and Small Cap - respectively.

The HKIRA 8th IR Awards 2022 is once again honoured to have Professor Louis Cheng, Dr. S H Ho Professor of Banking and Finance and the Director of Research Centre for ESG at, The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, as the Chairman of the Judging Panel. Being an advocate of IR best practice among Hong Kong listed companies, Professor Cheng has in recent years been researching on how ESG impacts investors' decisions. Observing its increasing importance, ESG-related awards have been added to the HKIRA IR Award categories since 2020. With ESG investing becoming increasingly mainstream in the professional investment community and ESG ratings often being used by investors, Professor Cheng has also been looking into the topic of score divergence (i.e. disagreement) among commercial ESG raters, and how such divergence affects or benefits investors.

Public nomination for the HKIRA 8th IR Awards 2022 is now open to Hong Kong-listed companies. Nominated individuals and companies will be placed on the online voting list upon confirmation of their participation. The investment community, including buy-side and sell-side analysts, and fund managers, are eligible to vote. Nominees with the highest votes (weighted) in each award category become the award winners. They then undergo a final assessment by the judging panel for the Most Progress in IR, the Overall Best IR Company Awards and the Grand ESG Award. Facilitating a fair and balanced evaluation, the judging panel comprises academics, representatives from professional associations and the investment community.

The HKIRA 8th IR Awards 2022 scheme has a total of 15 award categories honouring best IR practices of individuals and companies. Among these awards, 12 categories are open for nomination and voting, while the other 3 awards are selected by the judging panel. The award winners are to be announced at a ceremony to be held in Hong Kong in September 2022. For more information, please visit www.hkira.com/awards.
