About our 2016 Integrated Report

About this report

The Integrated Report endeavours to present an overview of the financial, economic, environmental, social and governance performance of the Group for the year 1 March 2015 to 29 February 2016. Datatec’s aim is to present a holistic overview of the value the Group seeks to create for stakeholders by communicating content that is useful and relevant in an open and balanced manner. The report summarises the Group’s approach to sustainability that takes account of resources employed in its business activities and resources and groups on which Datatec has an impact.

The information disclosed encompasses all divisions and subsidiaries of Datatec Limited, across all regions of operation unless indicated otherwise. These same entities are included in the Group’s consolidated annual financial statements. There was no change to the scope, or any measurement techniques used.


To ensure the integrity of sustainability reporting in the Integrated Report, the Group has a formal combined assurance model in place, which includes management, external audit, internal audit and other independent assurance providers.

Forward looking statements

The Integrated Report may contain statements regarding the future financial performance of the Group which may be considered to be forward looking statements. By their nature, forward looking statements involve risk and uncertainty, and although the Group has taken reasonable care to ensure the accuracy of the information presented, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct.

The Group has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward looking statements. There may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. It is important to note, that:

  • unless otherwise indicated, forward looking statements indicate the Group’s expectations and have not been reviewed or reported on by the Group’s external auditors;
  • actual results may differ materially from the Group’s expectations if known and unknown risks or uncertainties affect its business, or if estimates or assumptions prove inaccurate;
  • the Group cannot guarantee that any forward looking statement will materialise and, accordingly, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward looking statements; and
  • the Group disclaims any intention and assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward looking statement even if new information becomes available, as a result of future events or for any other reason, other than as required by the JSE Listings Requirements.
