Aixtron honoured with two German IR awards
Aixtron SE has won the German Investor Relations Award in two categories. The equipment manufacturer for the semiconductor industry secured the top ranking in the category "Best IR Work of an MDAX Company". Aixtron Vice President IR Guido Pickert achieved the first place for "Best IR Work by an MDAX IR Professional".
The ceremony for the award organized by Institutional Investor, WirtschaftsWoche, and the German Investor Relations Association (DIRK) took place at an evening event in Frankfurt am Main last Tuesday as part of the DIRK annual conference. Companies are awarded annually in the categories DAX, MDAX, and SDAX, as well as the best IR professionals in the respective indices.
The winners are determined following the results of Institutional Investor's Developed Europe Executive Team Survey. Each year, the survey collects independent feedback on the IR work of listed companies worldwide, surveying thousands of buy- and sell-side professionals.
"It is a great honour for us to be recognized with this prestigious award. The constant exchange with our shareholders is of major importance for us as well as a comprehensive and transparent communication towards the capital market. The German IR Award, both in the corporate category and for the outstanding performance of our VP IR Guido Pickert, is proof that our efforts here are not only noticed but also highly appreciated," says Dr. Christian Danninger, CFO of Aixtron SE, who received the awards at the event together with Guido Pickert.
"In a time of comprehensive change, Investor Relations plays a crucial role in shaping and communicating change. Whether it's sustainability, digitalization, or the current inflationary dynamics, outstanding IR professionals are significantly shaping these developments. Despite the challenging conditions, this year's German IR Award winners have done excellent work. They are symbolic of all those IR professionals who drive the industry forward and serve as role models," says Kay Bommer, Managing Director of DIRK.
The award was presented this year for the 23rd time. Since 2001, outstanding achievements in the IR field have been honored at the DIRK conference, with the award bearing the name "German Investor Relations Award" since 2007.
