  • Key Successes in getting IR done1. Taking the first step • Creating the right level of governance and support structures • Testing the IR framework (Eskom used the Quarterly shareholder report; January 2012)2. Early agreement by senior management to IR objectives • Material issues • Structure (Hard Copy and website design) • Timelines (shortest year-end release) • Stakeholder engagement3. IR driven by the Finance Director • Strong support from a core team with different skill sets to deliver on the agreed IR objectivesIn support of 4
  • Deferred Successes (Challenges)1. Developing IR capacity2. Ensuring consistency between different reports (Integrated report, Divisional report, Financial statements) – particularly from an editing perspective3. Tight timelines can cause lack of “thought through content” from content owners (link to capacity development)4.

  • Areas of focus going forward1. Alignment of monthly reporting and IR reporting processes2. Use of collaborative reporting software to streamline reporting and editing of content as well as develop better connectivity of information between various reports3. Website enhancements: Further improve the functionality and connectivity of information and create a consistent platform for Integrated Reporting4. Improve on the systemic integration of stakeholder engagement with the material issues5. IR has a forward-looking focus. Accordingly, more effort must be placed on developing relevant leading indicators that are materially connected to the various capitals of the IR frameworkIn support of 6
