Annual Reports

The report that is issued once a year by a corporation to its shareholders, which includes a discussion of the business and financial results for the year, along with the financial statements, such as balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement. Generally the annual report is provided in printed format on paper; however, recently, corporations have been offering their investors their annual reports in electronic format, in order to save on costs, paper, and trees.
