This study revealed that company size and industry classification was found significantly has positive association with the existence of investor information in the corporate website. On the other hand, for profitability and foreign ownership variables, result show insignificant relationship.The descriptive result may indicate that Malaysian companies may not take the opportunity to communicate with investors and stakeholders via internet, and choose the present traditional communication as what required by law. Another explanation is that, Malaysian companies may be complacent with the current traditional IR communications with institutional investors and funds managers in which this group are indeed familiar with how these Malaysian firms are operating.
