Survey Reveals Importance of Corporate Annual Reports.
Nearly 79% of all survey participants agreed that annual reports are an important tool in making investment decisions about companies. And, 90% of all participants agreed that annual reports should contain additional information facing the company and its industry, such as sustainability of the environment or corporate governance, and not just the company's financial and shareholder issues.
In addition, 81% of all participants prefer a printed annual report versus one in an electronic format. By audience, 75% of investors prefer a printed version and 94% of portfolio managers and securities analysts (combined) favor the printed format as well. Respondents cited that printed annual reports are easier to read, easier to file for future reference, and easier to highlight, mark up and take notes on, in addition to being more mobile than an electronic version.
