IR Magazine Greater China Awards Shortlist: Newcomer HTC Rivals TSMC for Most
Investor Relations Awards 
Short list announced for the IR Magazine Greater China Awards 2011 
Hong Kong, Oct 18, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - Two Taiwanese technology companies
loom large over the upcoming Greater China Awards in the 11th year of IR
magazine's Asian awards and conference events. HTC and Taiwan
Semiconductor Manufacturing Company feature on the short list for eight out of
the 30 categories to be awarded at a prestigious luncheon at the Conrad Hong
Kong on December 1, 2011. Both companies will compete for the grand prix prize
for best overall IR by a large-cap company and best IR for a CEO in Taiwan. 
The prospect of an eight-award haul for HTC is even more notable for being the
first time that the smartphone maker has been short-listed in any category at
IR magazine's definitive awards. Anta Sports, the Chinese sportswear
brand, is another high-profile newcomer to the awards, featuring on six short
lists in total. Hong Kong companies Cosco Pacific, Hang Lung, SmarTone
Telecommunications and Li & Fung are each short-listed for four awards. 
A full breakdown of this year's short list is available below, or on our
website at www.InsideInvestorRelations.com/gchina. 
The short list and the eventual winners, announced at the awards luncheon on
December 1, are determined by an independent survey conducted by Mary Maude
Research. During July and August, researchers spoke to more than 300 buy-side
analysts, sell-side analysts and portfolio managers located in the region.
Other awards categories voted for by the investment community include best
corporate governance and disclosure policy, and best investor relations during
a corporate transaction. 
The event at the Conrad will be hosted in association with Hong Kong Investor
Relations Association and is co-sponsored by Arkadin IR Events, BNY Mellon
Depositary Receipts, Jefferies and NASDAQ OMX. 
Celebrating 10 years of honoring award-winning IR in Greater China, Janet
Dignan, the founding editor of IR magazine, says: 'In a period of such
volatility in global stock markets and in the world economy - involving Asia
at least as much as anywhere else - IR is both more challenging and more
crucial. I'm delighted our awards will once again be recognizing the top
performers, and that the conference will provide the opportunity for analysis
and advancement of best practice investor relations.' 
IR magazine's Investor Perception Study, Asia 2011/2012, an extensive
research report on the winners and short-listed companies, will be published
following the event. This year's report will include the new Asia Top 50
IR ranking: a comprehensive list of the top companies across Greater China and
South East Asia.
