gb904150: I think it's a tiny and illiquid company and takes very little buying to move it. A lot of PI's don't know about the pref shares and the half-year report sounded positive. Perhaps that was enough to move the SP? Was there much volume? They were tipped in Moneyweek a few weeks ago where it was highlighted how 'cheap' they were on a P/E basis - again no mention of the preference shares. ZAM doesn't generate anywhere near enough cash to pay off the pref shares before the 8th anniversary (2024). At that point they can convert at 1:3 into equity rather than 1:1. The optics of that would be very poor for CDC so I doubt they would be quite so ruthless. More likely is some kind of debt refinance but in which case ZAM are entirely at the mercy of CDC as to how generous they want to be. Too much uncertainty for me but perhaps a nice gamble for others. I've always liked the 'feed Africa' ZAM story but unfortunately that doesn't mean they are a good investment! This one has never shown much prospect of being run in the interests of investors.
value viper: US trade bodies pledge support to Zambian companies September 4, 2017124 views Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The World Trade Center Los Angeles (WTCLA) and the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) have pledged to help Zambian companies to explore markets in the United States of America. WTCLA International Trade Manager Michael Smith says the LAEDC is determined to provide business assistance through market research to Zambian businesses wishing to locate or expand operations in Los Angeles County. “The LAEDC stands ready to help Zambian companies build capacity to allow them to tap into the U.S market in sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, construction, and technology skills transfer,” he said. The Corporation is the largest County economy in the U.S. with the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of over 640 billion United States Dollars. To this end, the USA Firm based in the US of California State says it is planning to visit Zambia next year to explore areas of investment in the country. He further urged the Embassy of Zambia in Washington D.C to avail WTCLA with detailed specifics of projects seeking investment in various sectors in order to position Zambia as a choice of investment destination. WTCLA is an affiliate of the LAEDC and is Los Angeles County’s leading promoter and facilitator of global connections and inbound foreign direct investment. Mr. Smith said this during a trade discussion meeting with Zambia’s Honorary Consul and Chief of Post in California Robert Sichinga Jnr, Embassy of Zambia in Washington D.C First Secretary Trade Charity Zulu and her Tourism counterpart Marsha Chipasha Holdway in Los Angeles. And Mr. Sichinga also called on the LAEDC to identify companies in Los Angeles that will help Zambian companies add value to most of its products to increase on exports. He observed that Los Angeles County is leading in sectors similar to those that Zambia has targeted as part of its growth of non-traditional exports and its Job Creation and Industrialization Strategy. He further called for the expertise of the LAEDC to help package Zambia in a way that appeals to the Los Angeles based investor. And Ms. Zulu said Zambia has launched the seventh national development plan that has outlined key areas of investment in the country. “Zambia’s manufacturing sector has considerable investment potential, as the country is relatively well endowed with raw materials and as such value addition, as well as technology transfer, is key,” she added. She further added that Zambia among other interventions is also exploring ways of the use of alternative and renewable energy to meet the country’s energy deficit. Meanwhile, Mrs. Holdway also urged the (WTCLA) to help identify companies in the film and digital industry to partner with film makers in Zambia to raise the country’s tourism profile.
catsick: There are the full results and some excellent presentations on the companies websiteOne thing I would note is that the company have totally dropped all mention of palm oil from everything they have just released, they have invested over 20 million usd to date in palm which has a large tax advantaged domestic market and plan to increase this to total 40 million over the project life, they have just commissioned a crushing mill and should be just about reaching maturity on the early plantings, yet zero communication .I suspect this lack of communication relates to the CDC , palm is a dirty word to western investors as a result of heavy EU funding of ngos campaigning against anything palm related, it is impossible for the eu to compete in edible oils with palm as it is natures super oil producer , ngos are trying to kill feronia over the border in drc who are the only employers in a devastated region, cdc are shareholders in feronia and i suspect at some point it may make sense to roll this investment into zambeef but they will be taking a lot of flack from euro ngos for the position in feronia and I suspect the cdc have asked for silence on palm despite it all being done on unused non deforested land ...It will be interesting to see how cdc influence zambeef, I thing they will be a good long term holder but political influence over what zambeef farm and do would be unwelcome ....
paul the octopus: problem usual come with dual listed companies like ZAM that oversees investors outside the UK won't need to notify their holding changes, that's the only thing I can think off right now with no holdings rns so far.

grollfam: Zambian dollar bonds fell, driving yields to an all-time high, after a credit-rating downgrade by Standard & Poor’s cast doubt over the government’s plans to sell its third Eurobond. Yields on the southern African country’s $1 billion of debt due April 2024 climbed for a fifth day after S&P cut its assessment one step to B, five levels below investment grade and the lowest since S&P coverage started in March 2011. The slide in prices deepened losses for Zambian dollar notes, the worst performers last month among 58 emerging markets monitored by Bloomberg A weakening currency may also add to the nation’s debt burden. Fitch Ratings warned on June 29 that interest payments on debt may surge to 17 percent of government revenue this year, up from 8 percent in 2012. Fitch rates Zambian debt at B, the same as S&P. Moody’s Investors Service has an assessment one level higher at B1. If authorities go ahead with the Eurobond plans, Zambia’s debt burden will increase to about 50 percent of GDP, S&P said. “The vulnerability of the kwacha is a major issue on this front as a greater external debt load will mean currency risks become much more acute,” Gareth Brickman, an analyst at ETM Analytics in Johannesburg, said in a note to clients.
paul the octopus: chief executive officer Francis Grogan says Zambia's natural resources combined with Japanese wealth and technology can help the country feed the entire southern African region. "We are looking forward to Japanese investors coming into the country and set up an assembly plant for agriculture equipment"Meanwhile, Grogan said Zambia had enormous natural resources in the food business and presented huge chances to process the same with the right technology from Japan. "Japan has vast wealth and technology. We in Zambia have vast natural resources, specifically in the food business. We have huge opportunities to process food, value add food and distribute food to the region," Grogan said in Chisamba at Zambeef's Hartley Farm on Wednesday when Japanese ambassador to Zambia Kiyoshi Koinuma and a delegation of Japan External Trade Organisation [JETRO] members visited it .  Grogan said the Japanese with their wealth and technology could reap great rewards if they invested in agribusiness in Zambia, particularly from water harvesting, irrigation and fish farming. The delegation toured Zambeef's meat processing plant and feedlot where they were shown how the company sourced its meat and processed it before distributing it around the country.Ambassador Koinuma said he had visited Zambeef Chisamba outlet before and he was always impressed by how well organised the operations of the country's largest agribusiness were and its good business model. He added that he believed Zambeef could feed the region and that he admired it's mission statement of "Zambeef feeding the nation".  JETRO executive director and delegation member, Kimihiko Inaba, said after the tour he was impressed by Zambeef's quality control and the care it took of its animals. "I can see why Zambeef is very successful," said Inaba. 
paul the octopus: Japan Be About To Invest In Zambeef Expansion? | FinanceFollow @AfricaBizReview on Twitter. During a visit to Zambeef's Chisamba facility, the Japanese Ambassador to Zambia, Kiyoshi Koinuma has indicated that Japanese investment could be used to radically expand food production and feed a significant number of people in the area.Zambeef Products is by far the largest agribusiness company in the country and is involved in every step in the food chain – from rearing to slaughtering, to processing, and retailing. They are also responsible for growing a significant amount of wheat, maize, and soy.Zambeef CEO Francis Grogan also accompanied the Ambassador to the facility which is an hour's drive from the county's capital, Lusaka. He said: "Japan has vast wealth and technology, we in Zambia have vast natural resources, specifically in the food business we have huge opportunities to process food, value add food and distribute food to the region."Mr Grogan also hinted at expansion on an epic scale; a partnership that could potentially "feed the 400 million" suggests that production could well come to expand into neighbouring regions, alleviating the conditions of millions more people.After several decades of economic decline, Zambia now contains a large, undernourished rural population, who struggle daily to secure even the most basic foodstuffs. Over 50 percent of children, and up to 30 percent of women of childbearing age suffer from anaemia.The delegation was composed of members of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry in South Africa, Japanese companies in Zambia, Japan External Trade Organisation, Japan International Cooperation Zambia office, as well as the Embassy of Japan.Financial and technological investment will not only bring jobs to the region, but will also help eradicate the diseases associated with malnutrition and extreme poverty.  RELATED:Zambeef invest KS54 million in new dairy facilites: shares tipped by leading investor publication:
