The ceremony was held on July 10, 2014 within the VIII International forum of corporate secretaries.
70 largest Russian companies, including those listed on Russian stock exchanges, participated in the awards.

The jury of the independent experts engaging representatives of the corporate governance community, Moscow Exchange and Russian Directors Institute, assessed the level of information disclosure on the companies’ websites. The criteria took into account not merely regulatory publications in accordance with the Russian legislation on the securities market, but also voluntary disclosure contributing to improvement of corporate governance level and investment appeal.
