Where Does the Money Go?

We generate revenue by providing products and solutions to our customers. This revenue is distributed to employees, suppliers and governments in the communities in which we operate. Cash which is not reinvested in the business is returned to our shareholders.

Additional monies, not shown here, are reinvested in the business in other ways, such as depreciation, and we directly invested more than A$2 million in community programs in the 2003/04 year.
