Ingenico Group awarded Grand Prix de la Transparence 2016
At the seventh Grands Prix de la Transparence awards ceremony held on 4 October 2016, Ingenico Group received the 2016 Grand Prix de la Transparence in the 'Services to communities and technologies' category, placing it in the Top 20.
Since 2009, the Grands Prix de la Transparence reward the quality of regulated information provided by companies incorporated under French law, listed on Euronext and included in the SBF 120 index. An independent scientific committee made up of ten representatives from all parties interested in financial information guarantees the neutrality and fairness of the ranking. They compile it to acknowledge companies that demonstrate the best practices regarding regulated information.
A company's practices are assessed based on its regulated financial information documents-registration document, half-yearly financial report, notice of the annual general meeting-and how accessible they are on its website. This method counts 144 criteria divided into four pillars: accessibility, accuracy, comparability and availability.
'We are delighted to receive our first Grand Prix de la Transparence. This award recognizes the efforts in transparency and raising awareness deployed in the information documents aimed at our shareholders, investors and stakeholders. Convinced that improving the governance practices applied by Ingenico Group is essential to support its growth, we regard this distinction as a great encouragement to pursue this path,' said Nathalie Lomon, EVP Finance, Legal and Governance for Ingenico Group.
