Johnson Controls received an IR Magazine Award for “Best IR during a corporate transaction” for the team’s work during the Johnson Controls merger with Tyco.
Antonella Franzen, vice president, Investor Relations, and Ryan Edelman, director, Investor Relations, accepted the award on the company’s behalf at a ceremony hosted in New York City, New York, on March 23, 2017.
“This award represents the joint efforts of both legacy Investor Relations teams, the support of the executive management teams, and all the functions and businesses that support investor relations,” Franzen said. “I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the team.”
Each year, the IR Magazine Awards honor excellence in the investor relations profession. Since the annual event first launched in 1996, tens of thousands of analysts and investors have voted in the surveys behind the awards. Over the last two decades, the awards program has expanded to recognize more aspects of investor relations, and their research now covers the perspective of winning companies in addition to the views of analysts and investors.
Johnson Controls beat out Danaher, Sherwin Williams and Wright Medical Group for “Best IR during a corporate transaction” award. Preceding the ceremony, recipients were invited to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to ring the closing bell and celebrate their achievements among friends and peers.
