We know that many investors and analysts don’t merely rely on a company’s financial statements to make their assessment of the company’s current and future performance. While the financials are critically important, we would suggest that you read this report together with the financials to make an informed assessment of a company’s capacity to deliver long-term growth.
To appreciate Vodacom’s ability to generate long-term value, it is important not only to look back at our past performance, but also to look forward – to reflect on how we see the future operating context, and to assess how we are positioning the Company to ensure its success in a rapidly changing business environment. Recognising that our ability to deliver value is ultimately dependent on the quality of our relationships, and on the health of the societies and economies in which we operate, it is also essential to understand how we are managing these relationships, and what we are doing to deliver social value. This Integrated report seeks to answer these questions by providing the information needed to make an informed assessment of our ability to create value over time.
Prepared in accordance with the IIRC’s International
As a Board, we have applied our collective mind to the preparation and presentation of the information in this report. We believe that the report addresses all material matters, and presents a balanced and fair account of the Group’s performance for the financial year 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018, as well as an accurate reflection of our core strategic commitments for the short, medium and long term. We have applied our judgement regarding the disclosure of Vodacom’s strategic plans, and have ensured that these disclosures do not place Vodacom at a competitive disadvantage. On the recommendation of the Audit, Risk and Compliance Committee, the Board approved the Integrated report and the consolidated annual financial statements on 1 June 2018.
We encourage our stakeholders to read this report and to share any feedback on our disclosure, our performance and our strategic roadmap for delivering value.
