Since being voted in to the Top 100 Pan-European Quoted Companies for IR in 2009, where Sanofi ranked 35th, the company has continued to rise up the list, finishing in 5th place in 2010, and ranking 2nd last year. "Investor Relations is a strategic management responsibility which
ultimately contributes to a company´s enhanced stock value in the long term. As the Extel IR rankings now get votes for over 1,500 quoted companies, to be first in Pan-Europe is a true accolade and recognition from investors and analysts," commented Steve Kelly, Managing Director, Extel with Thomson Reuters.
