Judges at the 13th Annual International Business Awards today awarded the 2016 Gold Stevie for ‘Communications Program of the Year – Investor Relations’ to the innovative investor relations campaign led by OxStone for the IPO of WiseTech Global in April this year.
In selecting the WiseTech Global’s Investor Relations campaign amongst entries drawn from 60 nations and territories, judges praised the campaign for demonstrating “financial communications at its best with impressive results”.
WiseTech Global CEO, Richard White, said “We are honoured that our investor relations programme has been acknowledged. We care deeply about innovation and breakthrough ideas in every facet of our business. When coming to market we wanted to extend that same ethos to ensuring that our investors could understand who we are and what we stand for.”
OxStone Managing Director, Gail Williamson, responsible for conceiving and executing WiseTech Global’s investor relations programme, said “Innovative thinking and clarity carried through to how we approached the IPO. The campaign was designed with the objective of helping investors understand unfamiliar industries, complex technology and to build strong durable investor relationships. Thus a multi-layered, longer-term investor relations programme was developed prioritising clear, accessible communication, innovative multi-media and extensive investor engagement.”
Williamson thanked the Stevie Award judges for recognising WiseTech Global’s efforts and commitment to investor relations when coming to market.
