Mr. Pham Tran Hoa Hiep – Head of General Affairs Division, Person-in-charge of Information Disclosure of Sonadezi Corporation received the trophy for Large-scale Public Enterprise on UPCoM for good information disclosure and transparency in 2022-2023.
According to the report of the quality evaluation program on the information disclosure and transparency performance of large-scale UPCoM public companies on HNX in 2022-2023, there are 305 large-scale companies on the UPCoM market in Vietnam as of July 1, 2023 eligible to participate in the program, accounting for 76.13% of the total UPCoM’s market capitalization.

HNX executives revealed that the criteria set for quality evaluation of (ID&T) practice in FY 2022-2023 includes original 72 criteria but with adjustments in content, evaluation methods and rating scales. Evaluation criteria are designed based on regulations on information disclosure and corporate governance (CG) of large-scale companies on the stock market, international practices on information disclosure and CG, and the Code of CG according to best practices.
In 2023, ID&T quality of HNX-listed large-scale companies reached 61.3%, an increase of 2.09% compared to the 2022 average (59.21%). The 2023 evaluation results again confirmed that large-scale companies with higher market capitalization and total assets often offer better quality ID&T. These companies also have ROA and ROE ratios proportional to the performance of ID&T. In addition, there seemingly exists a negative correlation between the quality of ID&T and financial leverage ratios; but a positive correlation between the quality of ID&T and the TobinQ coefficient of large-scale companies.
Also at this conference, Sonadezi Long Binh Joint Stock Company (HNX: SZB), a member of Sonadezi Corporation, entered the Top 10 listed companies with good corporate governance on HNX in 2022-2023.
