Hi KC & Peter, 
Can Market Capital figure be obtained from Annual Report? If yes, is it the Share Capital numbers of Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity section? Else, please indicate the section to locate this number.
Thanks.

Hi Cherk Ming,

Market cap = number of share x share price.
Since the share price fluctuate every minute during trading time, you will not find market cap in the annual report.

To calculate market cap, just take the number of outstanding share (you can find this in the annual report) and multiple the current share price.

Most online stocks portal like Google will show up-to-date market cap too.
