Revenue & Volumes
Revenue and volumes for the year were up 6% and 8% respectively on the prior year. The company has benefited from the lack of competition from
imports resulting from the difficulty in obtaining foreign currency. Utilities have purchased more aluminium products than in the prior year
accounting for the larger volume % increase over revenue % increase.

With the revenue increase complementing the lower cost base, profits increased by 80% year on year. Of the $1,2 million profit before tax $100
183 was export incentive received from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe on our export receipts in the period.

Basic earnings per share increased 73% from 1.28 cents per share to 2.21 cents.

equivalents were $4,2 million mainly due to the improvement in working capital. Trade and other payables increased from $735 654 to $1 496 132
mainly due to lack of foreign currency to settle our foreign creditors.

The company is currently benefiting from import protection – this period of protection must be used wisely to improve our competitiveness by
replacing key machines, cost containment and improving process efficiency.
Foreign currency is key to maintaining our supply of raw materials and enabling us to replace ageing plant. We also appreciate our responsibility
to generate foreign currency through exports and to meet all long term customer needs.

The Directors recommend not paying a dividend during this period of protection as the company is expected to invest in improving its
