London-based magazine, Euromoney, has named AirAsia Bhd the overall best managed company in Malaysia and the best managed company in Asia in the Airline/Aviation sector.

The Asia poll 2013 undertaken by the magazine is based on replies received from a total of 130 leading equity analysts at the largest investments banks and research houses in the Asia Pacific region, nominating a total of 207 different companies.

“We are very proud of the acknowledgement that Euromoney has given us,” said AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer Tony Fernandes in a statement here Thursday.

Analysts were asked to name companies that were the most impressive across a number of factors including management accessibility, accounting transparency and corporate governance procedures amongst others.
