  1. FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

The Group reported a profit for the nine-month period of ZMW307 million (USD23 million) (March 2019: ZMW448 million (USD40 million)). The 31% decrease in profitability was mainly due to the fact that the previous period is accounting for 12 months as compared to 9 months for the current period. Furthermore, there was a decrease in share of profit of equity accounted investee companies on account of the impairment of receivables by associate companies such as Kansanshi Mining Plc and Copperbelt Energy Corporation Plc.

The Company reported a profit for the year of ZMW153 million (USD12 million) (March 2019: loss ZMW108 million (USD10 million)), mainly due to exchange gains on foreign denominated assets and reduced administrative costs such as impairment of financial assets accounted at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables.

The Group and Company's retained earnings as at 31 December 2019 were positive at ZMW2,191 million (USD179 million) (March 2019: ZMW 1,857 million (USD155 million)) and ZMW978 million (USD79 million) (March 2019: ZMW825 million (USD68 million)) respectively. The increase in retained earnings is attributed to recorded Group and Company record profits in this period of ZMW307 million (USD23 million) and ZMW153 million (USD12 million) respectively.

Group total assets increased by 14% to ZMW15.2 billion (USD 1.2 billion) as at 31 December 2019 from ZMW13.4 billion (USD1.1 billion) as at 31 March 2019. This is mainly attributed to an increase in values of investments in associates from ZMW 10.3 billion (USD956 million) as at 31 March 2019 to ZMW 11.9 billion (USD.

  1. DIVIDEND

The Directors will recommend a final dividend payout of ZMW53,064, 601.26 (USD2,391,590.11) in total ( K 0.33 per share (USD0.0149)).

  1. SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENTS

 ZCCM-IH's investments were steered towards the mining sector. Thus, three core strategies were employed targeted at driving portfolio growth which were:

  • Pursuit of the royalty model in order to introduce new revenue stream;
  • Realignment of the portfolio to achieve more focus in mining and mining related activities; and
  • Development of turnaround strategies for loss making subsidiaries.
  1. OUTLOOK

Looking into the future, the mining sector is generally expected to face challenges during early to mid-2020 due to depressed commodity prices and disruption in international trade caused by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Despite these challenges, ZCCM-IH is committed to enhance value creation for its shareholders. Thus, ZCCM-IH will continue to diversify within the mining sector to mitigate slumps that may be experienced in some metals at a particular time while taking advantage of surges occurring in other metals during the same time.
