This is our second Integrated Report and we continue to benchmark ourselves against global best practices in the Corporate Reporting space. In preparing this report, we have been inspired by a number of new standards such as the King Code IV for Corporate Governance, Non-Financial reporting such as Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. There are also a number of additions such as the Global Reporting Initiative, new additions in our Risk Management and Governance Sections for the purpose of completeness of our report.
The 2016 annual integrated report covers the period 1st July 2015 to 30th June 2016. Any material events after this date and up to the group's board of directors(board) approval on 9th September 2016 have also been included. The integrated report discusses our operations in Mauritius and the rest of Africa, the geographic regions in which we operate. Our annual financial statements are prepared in accordance with IFRS. While quantitative information relating to the group is prepared according to IFRS, this report discloses material information that may extend beyond the financial reporting boundary.

needs. We provide a range of communication aimed at addressing our stakeholders’ requirements. In assessing what is included in the integrated report, we applied the materiality principle, defined below. We have designed this report in three versions. In addition to this printed report, an online version with additional supplementary information is available on our website (www.angloafrican.com/ir2016) and a concise version is available on GooglePlay and Apple App store.
In preparing our report, we were mainly guided by the IIRC framework. In addition to its guiding principles of Stakeholders’ Relationships; Materiality; Connectivity of Information; Conciseness; Reliability and Completeness; Consistency and Comparability;
