Inmarsat scoops award for top UK telecom company

Inmarsat has been named Best Telecommunications PLC in the UK Stock Market Awards 2013.

This year's shortlist proved highly competitive, with BT, Mobile Streams, Talk Talk, Telecom and Telecom Plus as fellow contenders.

The UK Stock Market Awards recognise publicly quoted companies that are “truly creating shareholder value”.

Tremendous achievement

The awards are judged by a ten-strong panel of City of London investment firms and personal advisors, led by Russ Mould, editor of Shares Magazine.

The judges were looking for excellence in financial performance, strategic and operational development, and robust shareholder return during 2012.

“The Inmarsat team is honoured and pleased to accept this award,” said Inmarsat Chairman Andrew Sukawaty.

“We have all worked tirelessly to develop our business in a way which delivers both customer value and superior shareholder returns.

“We are grateful to the prestigious panel of experts at the UK Stock Market awards and MSM Media Group for their recognition of our market performance.”
