NEW YORK, NY, APRIL 17, 2003 – Rx Communications Group, LLC, a financial communications firm specializing in the life science and healthcare industries, today announced that the firm has been nominated for a Silver SABRE (Superior Achievement in Branding and Reputation) Award for excellence on behalf of its work for Switzerland-based client Syngenta AG (NYSE: SYT).

Commenting on the nomination, Rhonda Chiger, co-President of Rx Communications Group, noted, “We are honored to have been considered for this prestigious industry award. We have worked hard over the past two years to heighten awareness and understanding of Syngenta’s story among the U.S. investment community and have been highly successful at doing so. In fact, since our relationship with Syngenta began, we have more than doubled the company’s institutional shareholder base and improved trading volume for the company’s ADS’.”
In addition to this nomination, during 2003, Rx Communications Group has won an Honorable Mention Award as part of the 2002 Magellan Awards Publicity Campaign Competition, sponsored by the LACP (League of American Communications Professionals); and was selected as a finalist by PR Week for Boutique PR Agency of the Year.
