Enhancing Management Commentary – Review of practice 

ASIC has recently identified Management Commentary as a key focus area, highlighting significant opportunities for improvements in both the quality and depth of discussion included in Management Commentary.

Enhancing Management Commentary – Review of practice is a practical guide to assist companies to develop Management Commentary that reflects best practice and gives true insight to capital markets.

 

Opportunities for companies to enhance their Management Commentary include:

 

  • ensuring that disclosures are comprehensive and easy to understand
  • including a discussion about strategy, opportunities, risks and uncertainties
  • clearly articulating KPIs and their link to the strategy
  • appropriate use of the Corporations Act exemption on providing information that results in unreasonable prejudice to the company.
