Brendan Wood Announces TopGun Companies in Canada: Selected By Shareholders,

Dollarama wins TopGun Company of the Year

For Immediate Release – TORONTO, Canada, March 3rd, 2016 (TopGun Press)

Brendan Wood International is pleased to announce the 2015/2016 TopGun Companies based upon real time polling of Canada’s most influential investors and the largest foreign investors in Canadian securities. Brendan Wood International’s ‘voice of the shareholder’ reporting measures 1400 corporations across 11 critical performance metrics, which determine the commitment of shareholders to their selected assets. The TopGun Company designation attests to the highest level of confidence in a company by major institutional investors who own or have the ability to own the stock in sizable stakes.

“TopGun Companies are consistently owned by long term investors through the peaks and valleys of market cycles and environments. Exceptional Corporate Strategy and Leadership at the Board, CEO, Senior Management and Shareholder Reporting & Disclosure levels are essential components of a TopGun Company,” said Jordan Novak, Managing Director, Brendan Wood International.

The voting panel is comprised of over 500 investors and sell-side advisory professionals, including the majority of TopGun Portfolio Managers, Analysts and Institutional Sales Professionals in Canada and abroad. The panel considered some 323 Corporate nominees listed on Brendan Wood International’s Shareholder Confidence Index. Less than ten percent of candidates, a total of 27 Canadian companies, were awarded TopGun status based on their performance on the complex array of investor confidence metrics which underpin investor commitments to their holdings. TopGun Companies outperform while poor performance on these metrics has a downward effect on value according to Brendan Wood International’s global data.

Dollarama earned the title of TopGun Company of the Year and also managed to sweep all four TopGun sub-designations. “According to investors Dollarama’s strategy is clear. Dollarama has an excellent management team delivering consistent high calibre execution. It is a stalwart in all respects and investors are comfortable being long the name,” said Novak.

Only 7 companies in Canada managed to sweep all four TopGun sub-designations. (TopGun Board, TopGun CEO, TopGun CFO and TopGun Company)
