Hussain Dawood

Chairman

Dear Shareholders,
On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is our privilege to present to you the Annual Report of Dawood Hercules Corporation Limited for the year ended 31st December 2021. The year 2021 served as a year of recovery for the world and its citizens as we all adapted to the ‘new normal.’ Resurgence of economic activity and effective healthcare provided much respite to the nation, enabling us to reorganise ourselves to navigate uncertainty to the best of our abilities. During this period, our commitment to serve Pakistan has remained strong; we are humbled to report that more than half of DH Corp’s contribution to the HD Pledge of PKR 1 billion for COVID relief efforts has been allocated and we are eager to deploy the remainder as we step into 2022. Through these uncertain times, we would like to express our gratitude to our Shareholders for your continued trust in DH Corp. Your confidence in us as stewards of your capital has fueled our passion and enabled us to focus on sustainable value creation. As an investment company that is dedicated to the transition to the future economy, we would like to emphasise that we remain committed to the creation of wealth in value-driven companies, of which a major driver will be the integration of technology and new ways of working. In order to deliver on this purpose, the Board of DH Corp has reaffirmed the company’s investment goals with adherence to principles of capital discipline and productivity, based on our responsibility to Shareholders. In line with this focus, efforts have been made to build capability in and around the organisation which we believe will enable DH Corp to deliver on its investing objectives. Among others, these measures include a stewardship team that advises on the investment mandate and the development of our people. We are grateful to Inam ur Rahman for his leadership of DH Corp since 2016 and we would like to appreciate his five-year tenure as Chief Executive Officer which has been marked by significant accolades, especially the consistent achievement of annual targets set for the company by the Board. The new Chief Executive Officer of DH Corp is Mohammad Shamoon Chaudry, an exceptional leader from within the company with a proven track record of portfolio management. The Board has faith in his ability to deliver on the investment mandate of DH Corp and wishes him all the very best in this new assignment. We are also particularly grateful to Shahzada Dawood for his stewardship of DH Corp over the past several years in his capacity as Vice Chairman. Shahzada has been the driving force behind the transition to the future economy. He has personally led the learning journey for the company by supporting a culture founded on curiosity and entrepreneurship with human development as the ideology based on developing character and good manners. We wish Inam and Shahzada all the very best as they assume their respective positions of responsibility as part of Engro Corporation. Our investments in Engro Corporation have yielded good results this year as the conglomerate deepens its resolve to address meaningful problems; we would like to congratulate the President and office of the vice chairman CEO, Ghias Khan, his team and all employees of Engro for their outstanding efforts that have gone into sustaining such a performance for the organisation. We would also like to acknowledge the achievement of the Dawood Foundation for their launch of Pakistan’s first contemporary and interactive science museum, The Magnifiscience Center, under the untiring leadership of Sabrina Dawood. Initiatives like these are critical investments in long-term capability building which is a cornerstone of our people philosophy. Capability building will also be a major driver of value creation for DH Corp as we acknowledge the changing demands of leadership, especially in light of our commitment to capital discipline. The Board of Directors is aligned with building strength in investing and rigour among our teams which facilitates them in focusing on investment mandates. We are pleased to share that our directors are well-placed to guide the management on this development journey given the decades of investment expertise over their respective careers. The consistent support of all our stakeholders, especially our people, shareholders, customers, partners, service providers, the government and regulators is most appreciated. The past year has been an eye-opener on the need for action and we are committed to building on what has already been achieved by participating in more meaningful partnerships, engagements, and investments so that we may endeavour to contribute in the creation of a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.
Sincerely,
