COMM 217, Fall 2009 Annual Report Group Project  The purpose of this group project is to familiarize students with the contents of annual reports, especially the financial section of the report. The project consists of a series or questions that pertain to various topics that are covered in the course. The class will be divided into a number of groups. Each group will consist of five members. You should start forming your group as soon as possible (see last page of this document). Tell your instructor if you have difficulty finding other people to form a five-person group. He/she will help you form your group. Each group will be assigned, at random, a company to analyze. A maximum of four groups will be assigned to one of the companies from the following list: Canadian Tire www.canadiantire.ca The Jean Coutu Group www.jeancoutu.com Le Chateau Inc. www.lechateau.com Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. www.couchetard.com Sun Rype Products www.sunrype.ca Leon’s Furniture Limited www.leons.ca RONA Inc. www.rona.ca To find the company’s most recent annual report, access the company’s website using your favourite Internet search engine. Look for “Company Info”, “About Us” or “Investor Relations” on the main page, and search through until you see “Annual Reports”. Then choose the latest annual report issued by the company. Alternatively, you can access www.sedar.com , which includes all the reports and documents filed by public companies and investment funds with the Canadian  Securities Administrators (CSA) . After you access SEDAR, click on “English”, click on “Company Profiles”, click on the letter of the alphabet that corresponds to the first letter of the company’s name, search for the company in the list of company names, click on the company’s name, scroll down the screen and click on “view” at the lower left corner of the screen. A long list of documents filed by the company appears on the screen. Scroll down until you see “Annual Report 2008”, or 2009 depending on which is the more recently completed fiscal year. Click on it to download the annual report.
