STATEMENT TO ZCCM INVESTMENTS HOLDINGS PLC SHAREHOLDERS
Delay in Dividend Payments to Shareholders on the Paris Euronext Access Stock Exchange
Lusaka, Zambia – At the ZCCM Investments Holdings Plc (ZCCM-IH) Annual General Meeting held on 29 June 2018, the shareholders of the Company approved a Final Dividend of K0.84 per share for the financial year ended 31 March 2017. Subsequently, dividend payments were effected on Monday, 30 July 2018.
However, due to financial and other regulatory requirements governing transactions across different jurisdictions, ZCCM-IH could not make the payments directly to shareholders based in France, and such has had to appoint an Agent to facilitate dividend payments.
Thus, for Shareholders based in France, payments await the conclusion of the engagement processes for a Dividend Paying Agent which has taken longer than anticipated. It is hoped that the engagement process will be concluded soon.
All affected shareholders will be notified once the engagement process is finalised. The inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.
