ASM Pacific Technology Recognized as 2018 Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Technology Leaders



SINGAPORE — ASM Pacific Technology Ltd. (ASMPT), has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Global Technology Leaders by Thomson Reuters in its inaugural program and is the only company established in Hong Kong. ASMPT is a world leader in the supply of semiconductor assembly and packaging equipment and materials, as well as surface mount technology applications. ASMPT is listed in the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (Stock code: 0522) and is headquartered in Singapore.

A 28-data-point algorithm was used by Thomson Reuters to calculate and identify technological companies based on eight performance pillars. These include Financial Performance, Management and Investor Confidence, Risk and Resilience, Legal Compliance, Innovation, People and Social Responsibility, Environmental Impact, and Reputation. These 100 awarded companies are those whose final scores derived from across the pillars outshine over 5,000 other technology companies around the world.

Topping the list are Microsoft, Intel, Cisco, IBM, Alphabet, Apple, TSMC, Texas Instruments, SAP and Accenture.

“We are honored to be named amongst other top technology players in the world. This recognition definitely underscores our success in delivering the highest value and innovative solutions to our customers, our determination in operating the business in an ethical and transparent manner and our commitment in giving back to the society.” said Mr. Lee Wai Kwong, CEO of ASMPT.

“Tech companies operate at warp speed confronting competitive, regulatory, legal, financial, supply chain and myriad other business challenges. Often times, their financial success overshadows operational integrity, making it difficult to identify those organizations with true fortitude for future success,” said Alex Paladino, global managing director of the Thomson Reuters Technology Practice Group. “With the Top 100 Global Tech Leaders, we’ve identified the unique data points that embody technology industry leadership in the 21st century; congratulations to the companies that made the list.”

“The Top 100 Global Technology Leaders are the organizations poised to propel the future of technology. We salute them,” said Brian Scanlon, chief strategy officer, Thomson Reuters.

ASMPT has been making its presence in the global worldwide market through the expanding of its global footprint and by winning a number of prestigious awards. Just last week the group celebrated the opening of its seventh R&D Center in Taiwan. The Group also bagged their third time win last month in the Grand Award in Technological Achievement of the Hong Kong Awards for Industries (HKAI) 2017 as well as other awards such as “Hong Kong Outstanding Enterprise” and “Directors of the Year Awards 2017” that focus on Corporate Governance.
