Gulf in corporate reports revealed
The gap between the best and worst FTSE 100 company reports is widening, according to a leading research company
Black Sun, analysed
the top 100 reports and singled out BAE Systems, Land Securities, Tullow Oil and
the BG Group as those companies with reports that articulated their performance
and strategy most thoroughly and clearly.
But others that emerged as the worst appeared to use their previous year’s
reports, to which they added updated information.
Black Sun’s director of corporate reporting, Sallie Cooke Pilot said the best
reporters had become ‘ambitious’ about the regime. ‘They’re rethinking how they
use the annual report to communicate with their investors,’ she said.
