It is traditional for my report to commence with an overview of the business and conclude with an expression of my appreciation to our people and other stakeholders. In these unprecedented times, I am going to depart from tradition and begin by thanking our entire team for their invaluable contribution over the past year and, in particular, their extraordinary efforts since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
