RTS Recognises Acron’s 2008 Annual Report

On November 20, 2009 the RTS Stock Exchange recognised Acron for the quality of the information disclosure in its 2008 annual report. Acron ranked second among companies with capitalisation of RUB 10-100 billion. This is the twelfth year the RTS has recognised companies’ information disclosure practices.

One hundred and twenty-five companies from Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan took part in this year’s review. The expert panel, made up of individuals from state agencies, professional business associations and securities market participants, named 29 winners in 26 categories.

Commenting on Acron’s recognition, chairman of the Board of Directors Alexander Popov said, “Acron’s improved transparency has been pointed out by recognised experts twice this year. In October, Standard & Poor’s included Acron in its top-ten list of major Russian public companies with the highest transparency rating. This time the RTS Russian stock exchange praised Acron’s annual report. The results demonstrate that the market appreciates our ambition to enhance transparency and ensure equal and timely access to disclosed information. We will remain committed to maintaining and further enhancing transparency.”
