About this report


Reporting approach

We are pleased to present our integrated annual report to our stakeholders. This report is primarily written for our shareholders but it is also helpful to our other stakeholders interested in our ability to ensure a sustainable business into the future. This report provides a consolidated review of our financial, economic, social and environmental performance on matters material to our strategy and our ability to create and sustain value.

The financial and other information has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of IFRS, the South African Companies Act 2008, the JSE Listings Requirements, King III and the international <IR> framework as applicable.

The group is continuously improving its combined assurance model. Assurance for elements of this integrated annual report has been provided through a combination of external and internal sources which will become more formalised in line with future guidance from the IIRC. Our internal auditors, KPMG, provided us with guidance regarding the principles and practices around King III and integrated reporting.

Scope and boundaries

The contents of this document addresses material issues for all our subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures and covers the period from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016 except where material transactions have occurred post-year end. The process we utilised in determining and applying materiality is included on page 21 of the report. Non-financial disclosures, except for environmental disclosures, focus on the South African operations, which generate 94% of our income. The scope and boundaries of environmental disclosures are defined on page 43.

Financial statements

We have provided summarised financial statements in the integrated annual report. The full set of consolidated annual financial statements, including the report from our audit and risk committee and directors' report, are available online or can be requested directly from our Company Secretary at companysecretary@tsogosun.com.

Board approval

The board, assisted by the audit and risk committee, is ultimately responsible for overseeing the preparation, presentation and integrity of the integrated annual report. This was achieved through the setting up of a sub-committee of the audit and risk committee to oversee the reporting process. The directors confirm that they have collectively reviewed the output of the reporting process and the content of the integrated annual report. The directors believe that this integrated annual report addresses the material issues and is a fair presentation of the integrated performance of the group in accordance with the international <IR> framework, and therefore approve the report for release. We welcome any feedback at investors@tsogosun.com.
