ZCCM-IH Shareholders in ZMW243 Million Dividend Payout as the Company Recordsa ZMW4.8 billion in Company Profit

03rd July 2024, Lusaka, Zambia: ZCCM Investments Holdings Plc (ZCCM-IH) shareholders approved a dividend of K243 million for the 2023 financial year during the Company’s 20th Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on Friday, 28th June 2024. Of this amount, ZMW187 million Kwacha will go to the Government of the Republic of Zambia through the Industrial Development Corporation (ZMW146 million) and the Ministry of Finance and National Planning (ZMW42 million).

The approval of the dividend follows a Company profit of ZMW4.84 billion recorded for the 2023 financial year end, a 14% increase from ZMW4.26 billion profit recorded in 2022. This improved performance at Company level was largely due to the royalty income of ZMW1.2 billion received from Kansanshi Mining Plc, and improvement in performance of investee companies in 2023, among others.

At the Group level, there was a 24% increase in losses, amounting to ZMW4.7 billion for 2023, primarily due to the underperformance of Mopani Copper Mines Plc. Despite this, the Group’s total assets rose by 20%, from ZMW48.92 billion to ZMW58.46 billion, driven by the increased value of investments in associates and other current assets.

The dividends declared for the 2023 financial year mark the ninth consecutive dividend declaration by ZCCM-IH, bringing the total dividends paid to shareholders since 2015 to over ZMW1.6 billion.
