MPIC gains coveted Most Honored Company status in Institutional Investor’s 2022 All-Asia (Ex-Japan) Executive Team

Makati, Philippines, 23rd June 2022 – Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) was recognized as a “Most Honored Company” in the recently announced 12th Institutional Investor Research (II Research) Annual Asia Executive Team survey. II Research recognizes Asia’s leading CEOs, CFOs, Investor Relations Officers, Investor Relations programs and ESG attributes that best uphold corporate governance standards and facilitate investment into their company. 115 companies attained a published position in the categories listed above to become an Honored company, and 46 of those companies were granted the coveted Most Honored Company recognition. MPIC is the only company from the Philippines to attain such recognition.

“Our investor relations efforts have been complimentary to improving our Corporate Governance. We view corporate governance as aligning the interests of management with all other stakeholders – with shareholders at the forefront. In this sense, the constant communication fostered by investor relations between management and shareholders reinforces that ideal,” said MPIC Chairman, President and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan.


Sustaining the Most Honored Company Status

For its performance in 2021, MPIC ranked first in the following Industrials (including Infrastructure) Sector (ex-Mainland China) categories as voted by the sell-side analysts: Best CEO for former President and CEO Jose Ma. K. Lim; Best CFO for Chaye A. Cabal – Revilla; Best Investor Relations Professional for MPIC Vice President for Investor Relations Maricris Aldover – Ysmael; Best Investor Relations Program, and Best ESG.

Carvin Lee, Institutional Investor Asia ex-Japan Commercial Lead, says, “2021 was a difficult year for corporates in Asia. Inflationary pressures fueled by geopolitical events have added further challenges to firms and executives, as they continue to address changing investor behaviors and regulatory pressure. When times are tough, true quality becomes more important than ever. Thanks to the valuable participation of the global investment and research professionals, our 2022 result recognizes and celebrates executive teams that have demonstrated effective leadership, IR excellence and strong ESG commitment to help investors through such a difficult year. We congratulate MPIC for their outstanding performance this year.”


Elevating IR Excellence & ESG Commitment

A total of 5,524 investors, portfolio managers and analysts from 1,521 voter firms participated in this survey, nominating 1,612 companies and 2,606 individuals across 18 sectors. This included 4,854 buy-side professionals from 1,381 buy-side companies with an estimated $2 trillion in Asia (ex-Japan) equities and 670 sell-side analysts from 140 companies. Polling was conducted in early 2022 to reflect the winners’ performance for 2021. The companies were rated on several core areas, including Financial Disclosure, Services & Communication and ESG as well as attributes for CEOs, CFOs and the Best IR Professionals.

Chief Finance, Risk Sustainability Officer Chaye Cabal – Revilla said, “At MPIC, we believe in empowering our investors to make informed decisions about our company and are continuously looking for ways to elevate our engagements with them.  We are grateful for these recognitions from II Research as they affirm that we are on the right track.”

“Our open line of communications across the entire MPIC group and the management teams of our portfolio companies has been instrumental to the success of the company’s IR program,” said Vice President for Investor Relations Maricris Aldover – Ysmael. “This honor would certainly not have been possible without their overwhelming support.”

2022 marks the second year that Mainland China, the Rest of Asia (ex-Mainland China) and sector Small and Midcap results have been reported separately to the overall Asia-Pacific results. Companies with a market cap of $10B or below are classified as Small and Midcap.
