Sonae Indústria has won, for the first time, the Euronext Lisbon Awards in the category “Best Performance”. This award excels the performance of listed companies on Euronext Lisbon in 2017.
The ceremony took place on 20 February 2018 as part of a larger event, “Conferência Via Bolsa”, and brought together an audience comprising different participants such as investment banks, listed companies, analysts, fund managers and law firms. It is intended to reward the best performance in 2017 by acknowledging the companies, institutions and persons who outperformed in the Portuguese capital market.
Sonae Indústria was represented by the company’s Investor Relations Officer, João Mangericão who said, “it is an enormous satisfaction to be awarded such a distinction which recognises the important work developed by the company in recent years.”
"This has been an exciting and challenging year that has seen a transformational change for the Sonae Indústria Group, positioning it for the future as a more profitable and sustainable company following the conclusion of the partnership with Arauco in Sonae Arauco and the stronger results that have come through, following many years of industrial restructuring and continuous improvement.
The alliance with a professional industrial partner such as Arauco, will allow us to share our experiences and particular skills and increase the robustness of our European and South African operations enabling us to grow the business and improve its market positioning with higher focus on product differentiation and customer value.
All these actions are driven by our aspiration to become the company of choice for our customers, suppliers and employees."
Paulo Azevedo, Chairman Sonae Indústria
