Excerpts from Chairman’s statements

In line with our overall strategic growth objectives, your company successfully obtained regulatory approvals to acquire 60% equity stake in Penman Pensions Limited. This was done entirely without borrowing due to the prevalent high interest rate environment in the latter half of the year. We have invested your company’s funds in this opportunity and we are confident of superior returns from it in the years to come.

Also, in order to compete favorably in the emerging technology-driven market we have embarked on a robust project to revamp/upgrade our technology Infrastructure. We have developed a set of IT strategic initiatives and implementation roadmaps to actualize this aspiration with attendant cost implications and significantly positive impact on our business anticipated.
