Report Boundary

This Annual Report addresses the operations of Sri Lanka Telecom PLC and its subsidiaries. As such, they are identified as ‘SLT’ or the ‘Company’ on an individual basis; and ‘Group’ on a collective one.

Following on from the preceding years, key financial aspects are to be discussed in the context of the Company and the Group. The SLT Group’s business operations are made up of fixed ICT operations and mobile ICT operations. Consequently, these two segments are identified separately in the Management Discussion and Analysis section. Where appropriate, they may be aggregated and termed as ‘ICT business’ and correctly identified as such.


This Report covers the 12-month period 1 January to 31 December 2016, and as such is concordant with our habitual reporting cycle for financial and sustainability reporting.

We do not notice any noteworthy changes in scope nor aspect boundaries from preceding reporting periods. The immediate preceding Annual Report, dated 29 March 2016, covering the 12-month period ending 31 December 2015, is available on the corporate website www.slt.lk
