11th straight Forbes’ “Top 50 Best Listed Companies” recognition

In Ho Chi Minh City, on August 17, Masan Group was acclaimed during the unveiling event of the “2023’s Top 50 Listed Companies,” hosted by Forbes Magazine. Remarkably, this marks Masan’s continuous presence in this prestigious list for the 11th consecutive year.

To secure a place on this esteemed roster, listed companies are required to satisfy the following prerequisites: demonstrate profitability in 2022 and maintain a minimum revenue and capitalization of VND500 billion. Furthermore, companies undergo a quantitative evaluation based on five key criteria: compound growth rates encompassing revenue, profit, ROE, ROC, and EPS expansion during the 2018 – 2022 timeframe. This is followed by an analytical assessment by Forbes Vietnam, which delves into the sustainable advancements of enterprises, encompassing factors such as industry standing, profit sources, the effectiveness of corporate governance, and industry prospects.

Amidst a stagnant real estate market and subdued domestic consumption, Masan’s achievement of growth and inclusion in the “Top 50 Best Listed Companies” attests to the enduring strength of its core consumer-focused business segment and robust financial underpinning.

Masan underscores its commitment to swiftly and comprehensively disseminating information, thereby fostering robust connections with shareholders and investors. In the 2023 IR Award poll hosted by Vietstock, Masan Group secured a spot among the top 45 premier listed companies, progressing to the final round of voting.

Furthermore, a notable development has surfaced as J.P. Morgan, a top-notch global entity renowned for its financial services, investment banking, and wealth management expertise, has projected substantial growth potential for Masan shares (HOSE: MSN). In precise terms, J.P. Morgan’s forecast sets the target price for MSN stock at VND102,000 per share in the year 2024.
