    Hello everyone.

    I’m reading Isaac Asimov’s Introduction to “The Caves of Steel” and I would like some help to understand exactly what “semianual statements” mean in the following context.

    Here’s the fragment: “The only trouble was that Gnome Press was just barely surviving, and ir never did get around to giving me clear semiannual statements, or much in the way of payments.”

    Thank you all,
    lilly jo

    Semiannual (financial) statements or reports are accounts of a company or organization activity during a preceding period of time. They give shareholders and like a means through analysing their investments. In the case of Semiannual reports, they are released twice a year.
