Results from Doyon Alaska Survey Research
Doyon, Limited thanks all shareholders who participated in the shareholder survey conducted by third-party researcher, Alaska Survey Research. Doyon has these surveys conducted from time to time to receive feedback from shareholders and gauge Doyon’s effectiveness. The data for the survey was collected January 31 – February 11, 2020, by both phone and email.
The survey has a +3.0 percent margin of error with 95 percent confidence. Alaska Survey Research reported that data was weighted to yield a shareholder sample with a representative distribution by region lived in, subregion enrolled in, shareholder age, gender, total shares held, and blood quantum.
Doyon was pleased to hear that most respondents, about 75 percent, gave Doyon an A or B grade. Another 14 percent of respondents gave Doyon an average rating, or a C, and 6 percent of shareholders gave Doyon a below-average rating, a D or F. Five percent of shareholders responded they weren’t sure.
This survey also helped Doyon get a baseline understanding of shareholders’ views on the recent announcement regarding Doyon’s agreement with Hilcorp for oil and gas exploration in the Yukon Flats.
Overall, Doyon found that 43 percent of shareholders support this agreement, and 18 percent oppose it. Importantly, many shareholders, about 40 percent of respondents, were not sure about the project. Doyon also learned that 49 percent of shareholder respondents had not yet heard of the Doyon-Hilcorp agreement, and Doyon will continue to provide information about this agreement and project to our shareholders.
Doyon will use the survey results to improve our communication efforts with shareholders as it relates to the agreement with Hilcorp, as well as throughout the Doyon family of companies. Stay connected with Doyon by visiting www.doyon.com and following Doyon on social media.
