IR Magazine Australia Awards 2005 to be Presented September 21, in Association with Computershare.

Sydney, Australia, Sept 15, 2005 - (JCN Newswire) - Once again, Australia&s community of investor relations professionals will gather together at a black-tie evening affair on Wednesday, September 21 to learn who has earned the most plaudits from the investment community. The sixth annual IR Magazine Australia Awards is hosted by IR magazine in association with Computershare, the global leader in share registration, employee equity plans and other specialised financial advisory and communications services, and will take place at the Westin Sydney.

The awards are based on an annual independent survey of the investment community to identify those companies considered to be leading exponents of investor relations in the UK. The research, conducted for the fifth year by the Financial Research Company, also investigates contemporary developments affecting the IR profession.

Additionally, there will be an Australasian Investor Relations Association (AIRA) conference in association with IR magazine during the day, prior to the evening awards ceremony. The conference will comprise plenary sessions, streamed breakout discussions and expert presentations on the most pressing issues and challenges facing today's IRO.

The sixth annual awards for the Australian market is a much-anticipated event in the industry; last year's awards ceremony drew more than 200 IROs, CFOs, CEOs and service providers. Among the 17 award categories are grand prix for best investor relations by an ASX 100 company and non-ASX 100 company, best IR by a CEO or chairman at an ASX 100 company and non-ASX 100 company, best IRO at an ASX 100 company and non-ASX 100 company, and best applied corporate governance. A shortlist of companies in each award category is attached.

The awards are in association with Computershare, and co-sponsored by AAP MediaNet, ACN Newswire, Armstrong Miller+McLaren, Australian Stock Exchange, boardroomradio, Citibank, Georgeson Shareholder Communications, Orient Capital, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Sky News Australia, Thomson STREAMX and World Television.
