OER, in partnership with Moore conducted a comprehensive survey of companies listed on the Muscat Stock Exchange, evaluating them against selected criteria including profitability, liquidity, shareholder returns, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), innovation, brand equity and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors. The assessment segregated the companies into three segments – large cap, mid cap, and small cap, allowing us to recognise and award the top-performing entities in each segment. Furthermore, OER’s editorial board meticulously selected the companies—whether listed, privately held, or government-owned—alongside industry leaders and innovative corporate initiatives that have made significant contributions to the economic and social progress of the Sultanate, aligning with the objectives of Vision 2040. The entities and individuals identified for their exceptional accomplishments will be honoured with awards at the event.
