Speaking of transparency, Labrador recently announced the winners of its 5th annual disclosure transparency awards. Here’s an excerpt from its press release:
PayPal, Target and State Street are among companies awarded top honors in the fifth annual U.S. Transparency Awards announced today by Labrador, a leading global communications firm specializing in transparent investor and stakeholder communications. The rankings compare the efficacy of corporate disclosure documents across the S&P 250 – the nation’s largest companies based on market capitalization – and are independently determined through an evaluation of all corporate disclosure documents.
Earlier this year, Labrador retained our friend & former colleague Broc Romanek to lead the charge on its disclosure transparency initiative. Broc posted more info about the awards and the winners in various categories on Labrador’s RealTransparentDisclosure.com blog.
Since I hosted our Proxy Disclosure Conference yesterday and spent all day in a coat & tie, I was hoping that somebody could finally get Broc into corporate attire for the awards ceremony. But when I saw his 8-minute video announcing the winners, I was disappointed to see that he dodged the bullet – although he looked stylish, he opted for the t-shirt with sport jacket. I sincerely doubt that Broc’s worn a tie since the last time he hosted our conferences.
