Course details

Listed companies are bound by duty to provide all necessary information to stakeholders in order to understand companies' performance. Some stock exchanges have dedicated formats and requirements while others have broad guidelines.

Reporting requirements however includes a minimum of
  • Companies product information, competitors, market risks, and road strategies
  • Management report explaining key aspects of companies performance (management, however, may not report all issues and materiality definition is vague)
  • Audited financial statements.
Annual reports are quite large documents with a full load of information. Investors and stakeholders can not trust all information and disclosure prima facie. hence they need to understand the structure of annual reports, what section contains what kind of information.

Users need a logical approach in getting around with the annual report, in this course, we will teach you that approach with practical examples and follow along the process.

We used APPLE inc as a case study and South West airlines as an example.
