Patterson Companies Named To Forbes List Of Most Trustworthy Companies

For the third year in a row, Patterson Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDCO) has been named to the Forbes list of 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America. Patterson is one of only four companies in 2014 that have appeared on the list three times in the past seven years.

“We are honored to receive this recognition once again,” said Scott P. Anderson, chairman and chief executive officer. “The credit goes to our employees, who have embraced the core value of taking care of our customers. We continuously strive for excellence, guided by our values and the belief that how we conduct our business directly affects the company’s efficiency, profitability and reputation.”

To determine the rankings, Forbes turned to GMI Ratings to create the list based on quantitative and qualitative data. GMI reviewed the accounting and governance practices of more than 8,000 publicly traded companies in North America. The selected companies consistently demonstrated transparent and conservative accounting practices and solid corporate governance and management. The companies also have appropriate board supervision and a low incidence of high-risk events.
