USANA Health Sciences Inc. has been selected by TGF Analytics as one of “America’s Most Trustworthy Public Companies.”
USANA was ranked fourth among small/mid-cap companies with an A+ rating—something only 5 percent of companies researched achieved. The rankings were based on dozens of factors in five key areas: financial governance; environmental, social & corporate governance; quality of earnings; relative risk; and market-implied governance.
“USANA is a company that prides itself on being trustworthy, whether it’s from the overall quality of our products to the information we provide to our investors,” said Kevin Guest, USANA’s chief executive officer. “We are delighted to be recognized for our efforts in building trust with the public and would also like to congratulate the other companies on this prestigious list.”
Since 2009, TGF Analytics has been modeling insights on risk, governance, and performance on publicly traded companies using a blend of market-based, proprietary, and third-party data. This is the first time that TGF Analytics has made its list of America’s Most Trustworthy Public Companies available to the public.
“Trust is a keystone to all good relationships—those between investor and the company in which the investment is placed, between creditors and the recipients of credit, between customers and businesses they patronize, employees and the workplace, suppliers and with whom they contract, and more,” said David R. Koenig, founding principal of TGF Analytics. “Trust affects both our ability to engage in relationships and, in many cases, the cost of maintaining those relationships.”
Topping the list of large cap companies were:
- Best Buy Co Inc.
- Intuit Inc.
- Adobe Systems Inc.
- The Home Depot Inc.
- Nike Inc.
