Connect 4 - Enhancements and changes Jan – Jun 2016


The Connect 4 team continue to develop our databases and services and would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to a few recent developments that have taken place.

These changes may assist you in narrowing your search to find exactly what you are looking for, or introduce a whole new avenue of discovery.

Annual Reports

The Beta site has been retired; any clients with the old Annual report site bookmarked or as a link from intranet page should disable this.

The new interface offers secondary document PDFs as well as primary reports where such document exists:

  • Annual Review and Annual Financial Statements 
  • Separately lodged Corporate Governance Statement linked as secondary document to Annual report

Enhanced searching of PDFs (where PDF is lodged as searchable by the company with the ASX)


Connect 4 is continuing to progressively enhance its coverage of C-level positions to more readily reflect job titles used by ASX companies. The coverage of KMPs has also been broadened to include all KMPs mentioned in the annual report together with remuneration where disclosed (or indicated if not provided*). 

  • Field ‘NPBC’ means person not paid by the company for this position
  • Field ‘RNP’ means person is this position has no remuneration provided

Clients can now isolate independent non-executive directors once a search has been completed. Results will display on search screen and can then be downloaded into a spreadsheet and sorted using Excel.

Document products

New OCR software for documents products: Annual reports, Prospectuses and Bidder & Target Statements

Connect 4 is currently trialing a replacement of the current PDF manager/publisher software to allow for quicker processing of documents and enhanced functionality.
