Brendan Wood International Releases 2011 TopGun List of European Industrial Corporations

Outstanding Management Teams Underpin Investor Confidence

NEW YORK, NY June 10, 2011 (TOPGUN PRESS) – TopGun Executive Talent Agency and Performance Advisors, Brendan Wood International today, released the results of its European Industrials Shareholder Confidence poll. Swedish manufacturer, Atlas Copco AB, earned the highest index score followed by Arkema SA, BASF SE, Cie de Saint-Gobain SA and Vinci SA.

The TopGun designation is awarded to corporations which have achieved a leader position on the Brendan Wood Global Shareholder Confidence Index. Shareholder votes evaluate each corporation on a number of criteria over which management of the corporation has substantial influence. The shareholders in the Brendan Wood Panel are 2,500 large institutional investors whose portfolio holdings include substantial investment positions in the index companies evaluated. Confidence in direction and management’s ability to execute the corporation’s strategy are often pivotal differentiators of TopGun corporations. This differentiation can and usually does symbolize a high level of approval of current senior management and/or board members. Hence, a number of TopGun Designations of individual executive personalities accompany those of their firms this year.

Companies with the highest shareholder confidence have historically been those with TopGun CEO/CFO combinations. These dynamic duo scenarios were achieved by Arkema SA (CEO Thierry Le Henaff and CFO Thierry Lemonnier), Atlas Copco AB (CEO Ronnie Leten and CFO Hans Ola Meyer), Vinci SA (CEO Xavier Huillard and CFO Christian Labeyrie), ArcelorMittal (CEO Lakshmi Mittal and CFO Aditya Mittal) and BASF (CEO Juergen Hambrecht and CFO Kurt Bock). As per TopGun investors, companies at the top of the BWI Shareholder Confidence Index have CEO’s and CFO’s who come from industry, have a deep understanding of their business and have a proven track record of consistently delivering on expectations. Dynamic duos have a unique charisma and are able to clearly communicate strategy and vision. As a result, these duos have added consistent shareholder value and are trusted most by their shareholders. Notably, these include:
