We are pleased to present our 2019 integrated report which covers the performance of EOH Holdings Limited ('EOH Holdings' or 'the Company') and its subsidiaries (hereafter referred to as 'EOH' or 'the Group') as well as its associates and interests in joint ventures for the year ended 31 July 2019.
EOH's integrated report contains the full set of audited Consolidated Annual Financial Statements for the year ended 31 July 2019.
The following reporting frameworks were considered when preparing this report:
EOH continues to progress on the journey outlined by King IV, while ensuring increased integration of reported financial, social, governance and environmental information. EOH uses the concepts, guiding principles and content elements contained in the <IR> Framework as a platform for this integrated report.
EOH's integrated report focuses on information that is material to EOH's business. It provides a concise overview of EOH's performance, prospects and ability to continue to provide sustainable value for all its stakeholders. The legitimate interests of all stakeholders have been taken into account and all material information has been included in this report.
The Board of directors of the Company ('the Board'), assisted by the Audit Committee, is responsible for ensuring the integrity of the integrated report. Accordingly, EOH applies the combined assurance model by using a combination of external service providers and the input of management. The audit opinion expressed by the external auditors is included in their audit report as part of the Consolidated Annual Financial Statements.
This report contains forward-looking statements which are based on assumptions and management's view of EOH's future performance. Such statements are, by their nature, estimates, subject to risks and uncertainties, which may result in EOH's actual performance being different from that expressed or implied in any forward looking statements. These statements have not been audited by EOH's external auditors.
The Board acknowledges that it is responsible for ensuring the integrity of this report and has applied its collective mind in the preparation thereof. The Board believes that the report has, in all material respects, been presented in accordance with the IIRC integrated reporting <IR> Framework.
