Why Annual Report Printing?

Knowing how a company earns its profit, meaning by what kind of services or products, is imperative.  The sensible way to do this is by reading the company’s annual report. Most companies, however, use the document as a marketing tool as well, and take time to talk about the history of the industry the company is involved in along with emerging trends.

An annual report is a yearly publication by public companies to better inform investors about the company’s line of business. It is distributed to employees, customers, shareholders, and the general community. Individuals with assets tied up in the company can also use the annual report to determine the security of the investment. Its main purpose is to act as a comprehensive report on a company’s activities throughout the preceding year. The contents of an annual report provide information about how well the business is doing financially, upcoming changes projected for the next year, and the management staff of the company. Reading an annual report serves as the first step towards investing in a particular company.

Many require that annual reports should be filed at the company’s registry. Concerned parties, such as shareholders, can use an annual report to make important decisions regarding the company. Companies listed on a stock exchange are also required to report at more frequent intervals (depending upon the rules of the stock exchange involved).

Typical Annual Reports will Include:

  • Chairman’s report
  • CEO’s report
  • Auditor’s report on corporate governance
  • Mission statement
  • Corporate governance statement of compliance
  • Statement of directors’ responsibilities
  • Invitation to the company’s AGM

as well as financial statements including:

  • Auditor’s report on the financial statements
  • Balance sheet
  • Statement of retained earnings?Income statement
  • Cash flow statement
  • Notes of financial statements
  • Accounting policies

In addition, the annual report lists pricing trends for the company’s stock, and provides a list of major employees and board members along with their contact information.

In many cases, an annual report resembles a marketing brochure more than an official document. It is commonly printed on glossy paper, with numerous pictures and cutting edge typography to draw the eye.
