Walmart issued its 2019 annual report and filed its proxy statement in preparation for the company’s upcoming shareholders’ meeting in June.
“This has been a period of significant change at Walmart,” said Walmart President and Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon in his letter to shareholders, associates and customers. “Our customers are being served by associates who are better equipped to create new ways of shopping and put today’s technology to work. Our goal is to make it easy, fast, friendly and fun to shop with us. The progress we have made is reflected in our results, and we are just getting started.”
The 2019 annual report provides shareholders with highlights of Walmart’s achievements in the last fiscal year that contributed to the company’s strong momentum.
