Premier blue chip, John Keells Holdings Plc (JKH) yesterday opened trading on the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) marking the first in a series of events featuring companies from the S&P SL20 index.
Given its status as one of the largest listed conglomerates in the country and one of the highest market capitalisations on the CSE, JKH was selected to initiate this new tradition.
JKH Chairman Susantha Ratnayake, Deputy Chairman Ajit Gunewardene, Group Finance Director Ronnie Peiris and President and member of the Group Executive Committee Krishan Balendra took part in the market opening ceremony. CSE Board Member Anton Godfrey was also present at the event.
CSE Chairman, Vajira Kulatilaka conveyed his appreciation for the close relationship that JKH has shared with the CSE while expressing admiration for the close relations that the company maintains with its investors.
“JKH really went out of its way to keep relations going and the results are evident. I think that’s what capital markets can learn from — the relationship that they maintained with its big or small investors is very important,” he stated.
The new tradition of having an S&P SL20 company open trading is expected to become a regular occurrence that will help the CSE to further strengthen relationships with listed entities.
Kulatilaka went on to recall with gratitude, the unwavering support offered by JKH during foreign and local road shows and investor forums, adding that he looked forward to similar support in the coming years.
