Virši receives Nasdaq Baltic Award for Best Investor Relations  on First North Share List

Energy commodities trader and convenience store network AS Virši-A (hereinafter – Virši) has received the Nasdaq Baltic Award 2023 for Best Investor Relations on First North Share List.  This award recognizes the company’s achievements in transparency, good corporate governance practices and investor relations. 

“We are proud of our company’s achievement and are grateful to the team, investors and partners who have all supported us along the way. Virši has now spent more than a year as a listed company, and we can conclude that the benefits of this journey have certainly outweighed the costs. The preparation phase for listing on the stock exchange took our company about a year of intensive work. Prior to listing on the stock exchange, we improved the corporate governance of the company, made various improvements in legal and financial matters, and strengthened the recognition of the Virši story in the public space. 


Already having the status of a public joint-stock company, we implemented our investor relations strategy, introducing the shareholder benefit programme and ensuring transparency in the company’s development processes. This Nasdaq Baltic Award is a confirmation and a sign of quality for the successful accomplishment of the company’s strategic development plan and its goals,” says Jānis Vība, Chairman of the Board of Virši. 


The winners of the Nasdaq Baltic Awards 2023 were honoured during a festive awards ceremony at each Baltic exchange on 9 February. The awards were presented for outstanding achievements of Nasdaq Baltic listed companies in the investor relations area, and spotlighted capital market participants and events that have contributed most to the development of the Baltic and local capital markets.


 "Congratulations to Virši on receiving 1st place at Nasdaq Baltic Awards 2023 nomination "Best investor relations in the First North stock market" in the Baltics. We are happy to celebrate together with our local Latvian company. The Baltic First North market is tailor-made for small and medium-sized companies - size does not matter, it`s all about ambitions. Virši ambitions allow the company to be proud not only of a record number of attracted investors, but also of investors' recognition", said Daiga Auziņa-Melalksne, head of the Nasdaq Baltic Exchange.
