Myers Industries Named One Of America's Most Trustworthy Companies By Forbes

Myers Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MYE) has been named one of America's 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in an annual survey commissioned by Forbes. Myers was ranked in the Small-Cap Company category, with an accounting and governance risk (AGR) score of 94 out of a possible 100, and an average score of 92 over the last four quarters.

The analysis was conducted for Forbes by GMI Ratings (GMI), a leading independent provider of global corporate governance ratings; Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings; and accounting risk ratings and research on public companies. It ranks the nation's top 100 companies that have consistently demonstrated transparent and conservative accounting practices and solid corporate governance and management.

According to Forbes.com, GMI finds these companies “do not play games with revenue and expense recognition, or with asset valuation” and “GMI’s evaluation penalizes companies for unusual or excessive executive compensation, high levels of management turnover, substantial insider trading relative to their corporate peers, or high levels of short-term executive compensation, which encourages management to focus on short-term results.”

“Myers Industries works very hard to earn the trust of our stakeholders through clear and transparent reporting and corporate governance best practices,” said President and Chief Executive Officer John C. Orr. “We are very proud that these efforts have been recognized, and Myers Industries is honored to be named as one of America's most trustworthy companies.”

Forbes.com's Top 100 Most Trusted Companies list was compiled by GMI analyzing more than 8,000 companies traded on U.S. exchanges with market caps of $250 million or more. Companies are grouped into Large-, Mid- and Small Cap subcategories, and each quarter they receive an AGR score based on GMI’s proprietary modeling, which evaluates practices that historically have a correlation with increasing shareholder risk.
