Investrust Bank PLC Extract from 2022 Annual Report

Investrust generated revenue of ZMW 150.8 million(2021: ZMW170.7 million) and net loss for the year was ZMW2.6 million (2021: ZMW15.1 million in profit). For the twelve-month period ended 31st December 2022, the Bank’s financial performance exhibited signs of improvement despite the inadequate capital. The Bank recorded a decline in bottom line income compared to the prior period. The decline in bank performance was largely attributed to the Bank’s inadequate capital which had a negative ripple effect on its ability to make advances and loans, attract deposits and invest in new IT infrastructure.  

ZCCM-IH, alongside other key stakeholders in Investrust, continued to strategize on the best possible option to recapitalise the Bank in order to make it competitive and enable it to play its rightful role in the Zambian financial sector.  

The Bank’s share price on the Lusaka Securities Exchange closed the period under review at ZMW25 (2021: ZMW15).  

There were no dividends declared during the period under review (December 2021: Nil).
