Ryder System, Inc. announced it has been recognized in the IR Global Rankings as one of the top five companies in two categories: Best Ranked Financial Disclosure Procedures in North America, and Best Ranked IR Websites in North America.
The IR Global Rankings are the most comprehensive technical ranking system for investor relations Websites, corporate governance practices and financial disclosure procedures. This is the fourth time in the past five years that Ryder has been recognized in the rankings as one of the top companies for Financial Disclosure Procedures, and is Ryder’s first IRGR award for its investor relations Website.
In 2011, Ryder launched a new online investor center at http://investors.ryder.com, including the company’s first online annual report. The new site was redesigned to convey the company’s investment thesis and provide additional analytical resources, while enhancing its ability to provide high-quality timely information to analysts and investors.
Ryder says the dedicated online investor center complements investor relations program, which includes ongoing dialogue with participants in the equity markets; participation in numerous equity investment conferences; hosting investors at the company’s headquarters in Miami; and providing tours of Ryder’s operating facilities.
“Ongoing communication, transparency and fair disclosure practices are critical to maintaining investor confidence,” said Bob Brunn, vice president of corporate strategy and investor relations for Ryder. “We are very proud to have received two Investor Relations Global Rankings awards in 2012, which recognize our efforts to implement best practices in investor relations.”
