OREANDA-NEWS. July 20, 2010. According to the results of the Thomson Reuters 2010 Extel Pan-European Survey, Uralkali’s IR team was ranked 1st in "Most progress in investor relations" and 3rd in “Best roadshows / visits” at the 2010 Extel Surveys Awards.

The winners were selected via an independent survey among European analysts and investors. The awards ceremony, organized by IR Magazine Russia & CIS, was held on 15 July 2010.

In 2009 Uralkali’s IR team was ranked as the best in the chemical sector, based on the results of Thomson Reuters’ Focus Russia 2009 survey.

Denis Morozov, Uralkali’s President and CEO, said:

“Uralkali has always placed a great focus on investor relations and I am delighted that our IR team’s work has once again been recognised by Russian and foreign experts alike. The Thomson Reuters survey results are reward for the high standards we strive to achieve across all our IR activities. Those standards are built upon the principles of transparency and openness.”
