CLARIFICATION

I’ve had a few queries for clarification on whether below request is for calendar years or financial years. I can confirm I am requesting the information for calendar years – so my requests for Qs 1 to 3 should really read i) 2012 ii) 2013 iii) 2014 iv) 2015 v) 2016 vi) 2017 and vii) 2018 to date (if possible).

I hope this makes sense? Apologies for the confusion with this.

Also, if gathering information for Q3 is too costly or difficult, I will accept responses to just Q1 and 2.
