The statement reads as follows.
A Domino's spokesperson said: Domino's AdFund was independently audited in 2016, which confirmed all expenditure was appropriate and meeting the requirements of the Franchising Code of Conduct.
However we accept we did not provide a copy of this audit report on time to our franchisees, or the required financial statements in previous years - this was an oversight.
Domino's apologises to our franchisees for this honest mistake, and will ensure an annual audit report and financial statement are distributed to franchisees as required by the Code each year going forward.
