Last night saw the 29th annual PLC Awards take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane. Hosted by BBC news presenter Kate Silverton, the event celebrated the success and achievement amongst small and medium-sized publicly quoted companies in the UK, in 2014.
Over 1,200 industry professionals were in attendance, including twelve members of the RD:IR management team.
RD:IR was proud to sponsor the ‘Turnaround of the Year’ award, which focused on companies that have completed the most innovative turnaround of the year, in a way likely to save or substantially improve the business. Further, the award required that the winner be a business that is strongly positioned for future growth. With a shortlist of six companies, the team were delighted that Skyepharma Plc, an RD:IR client, pipped the competition to first place.
RD:IR’s ‘Joint Head of Analytics’, Ian Smith, joined Kate Silverton in presenting Skyepharma Plc with their award.
