Mr. Asif Baig Mirza Director LSE stated that the start of the CBP is yet another fulfillment of the corporate social responsibility agenda of the Exchange. He said that CBP has been started to create more awareness about the companies in the general investors and to also enable the companies to fulfill their investor relations obligations.

He urged all listed corporations to make use of the CBP opportunity to create a strong bond with their investors. He said that such regular communication with the investors would help the companies in their capital structure planning as the companies would be able to assess the mood of the investors and plan further capital raising through secondary public offering or the right shares. He stressed that LSE considers it essential for the companies to participate in such programs so that there is no information asymmetry regarding our listed companies.
