Third prize award for the best investor relations

Companies from the CROBEX index and those listed on the Zagreb Stock Exchange’s Prime and Official Market enter the competition. The award winners are decided on the basis of statistical criteria relating to the issuer’s compliance with the Rules of the Stock Exchange and on the basis of a survey conducted among participants of the capital market.

The award for the third ranking company went to AD Plastik, for the second ranking to Atlantic Group, and for the first ranking went to Valamar Riviera.

“The award is extremely important to us because it is about recognition by a professional financial public. Our business in the global marketplace requires the respect and continual improvement of high standards of corporate governance. The effort we put in is recognized, and it is our motive to be even better,” said Marinko Došen, President of the Management Board of AD Plastik, expressing gratitude to the organizers and participants of the conference.

The “Challenge of Change” conference represents the central gathering of the financial community from Croatia and the region, and this year about 40 speakers and about 450 participants from all branches of the financial industry attended the conference.
