Other information

Management and directors are responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the directors’ report (but does not include the consolidated financial statements and our auditor’s report thereon), which we obtained prior to the date of this auditor’s report, and the Group’s Annual Report, which is expected to be made available to us after that date.


Our opinion on the consolidated financial statements does not cover the other information and we do not and will not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.


In connection with our audit of the consolidated financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information identified above and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the consolidated financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit, or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.


If, based on the work we have performed on the other information that we obtained prior to date of this auditor’s report, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.


When we read the Group’s Annual Report, if we conclude that there is a material misstatement therein, we are required to communicate the matter to those charged with governance.
