A lot to digest, but at first glance these shares are being placed at 13.5p which is a significant premium to the current price.

Those results look pretty decent !
Rns out $3.5million provision released :)
exchange improving
The truth is Zambeef doesn't have the cash to pay for the option exercising, so there will have to be a highly dilutive share issue. And the market for African based companies is not high atm, so there will probably be a substantial discount to market price.
Agree, all a bit out of the blue! Sold up recently and moved on.
what a surprise, will take a bit for the dust to settle.

Rcl Foods Limited - Announcement Of The Exercise Of The Put Options Granted To Rcl Foods Limited By Zambeef Products Plc Release Date: 24/03/2016 12:18:00 Code(s): RCL Announcement of the exercise of the put options granted to RCL Foods Limited by Zambeef Products plc RCL FOODS LIMITED (Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa) (Registration number: 1966/004972/06) ISIN: ZAE000179438 Share Code: RCL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE EXERCISE OF THE PUT OPTIONS GRANTED TO RCL FOODS LIMITED BY ZAMBEEF PRODUCTS PLC IN RESPECT OF ZAM CHICK LIMITED AND ZAMHATCH LIMITED 1. Background During 2013, RCL Foods Limited (“RCL FOODS”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Rainbow Farms Investments Proprietary Limited, entered into agreements with Zambeef Products PLC (“Zambeef̶1;) regarding investments in its broiler business, Zam Chick Limited (“Zam Chick”), and a greenfield hatchery investment, Zamhatch Limited (“ZamhatchR21;). RCL FOODS has a 49% interest in Zam Chick and a 51% interest in Zamhatch. Shareholders’ agreements were entered into between RCL FOODS and Zambeef in respect of Zam Chick on 1 February 2013 (“the Zam Chick Shareholders’ Agreement”) and Zamhatch on 29 May 2013 (“the Zamhatch Shareholders’ Agreement”) (collectively, “the Shareholders’ Agreements”). In terms of the Shareholders’ Agreements RCL FOODS, as a standard protection mechanism, was granted put options that would require Zambeef to acquire all of the ordinary shares held by RCL FOODS in Zam Chick (“the Zam Chick Option”) and Zamhatch (“the Zamhatch Option”) (collectively, “the Options”). If the Zam Chick Option is exercised at any time, the value attributable to RCL FOODS’ interest in Zam Chick (49%) will be determined as the higher of the following amounts on the date that the Zam Chick Option is exercised: - 49% of the consolidated earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (“EBITDA”;) of Zam Chick at an exit enterprise value (“EV”) / EBITDA multiple of 7.5 times; or - the original purchase price paid by RCL FOODS to Zambeef for the Zam Chick shares, expressed in US Dollars (“USD”). Currently, RCL Foods has no shareholder loan account claims against Zam Chick. If the Zamhatch Option is exercised within 3 years of the effective date (31 March 2013), the value attributable to RCL FOODS’ interest in Zamhatch (51%) will be determined as the higher of the following amounts on the date that the Zamhatch Option is exercised: - 51% of the consolidated EBITDA of Zamhatch at an exit EV / EBITDA multiple of 7.5 times; or - the invested USD amounts outstanding to RCL FOODS on capital and loan account. Should the Options be exercised, the purchase consideration in respect of the Zam Chick shares and the Zamhatch shares purchased by Zambeef, shall, at Zambeef’s discretion, be payable as follows: - in cash; or - by the transfer by Zambeef to RCL FOODS of Zambeef shares; or - by the issue and allotment by Zambeef to RCL FOODS of newly issued Zambeef shares; or - by a combination of Zambeef shares and cash. The value attributed to the Zambeef shares for purposes of settling the purchase consideration or part thereof in Zambeef shares, will be determined by the Volume Weighted Average Price (“VWAP”) of Zambeef shares as quoted on the AIM Stock Exchange for 30 business days immediately preceding the settlement date. The settlement date shall not be later than six months from the date that the Options are exercised. Zambeef’s market capitalisation as at 23 March 2016 is USD31.9 million (based on an exchange rate of GBP1.00: USD1.4091). In terms of each of the Shareholders’ Agreements, and in respect of each Option, to the extent that Zambeef is unable to effect the total payment for the Option shares in cash, then it shall effect payment by issuing Zambeef shares to RCL FOODS. For this purpose, Zambeef warranted that it would hold available up to 10% of its issued ordinary share capital (in respect of each Option). In accordance with Zambian laws and regulations, certain scenarios relating to the acquisition of the shares by Zambeef may require shareholder approval. In addition, the approval of the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, the Lusaka Stock Exchange and the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) will be required in order for Zambeef to implement the acquisition of all of the ordinary shares held by RCL FOODS in Zam Chick and Zamhatch in accordance with the terms of the Options. 2. Exercise of the Options Exercise notices in respect of Zam Chick and Zamhatch were delivered to Zambeef on 23 March 2016, informing Zambeef that the Options have been exercised. This action fixes the Option exercise date and commences the six-month period for purposes of determining the settlement date, in accordance with the terms of the Shareholders’ Agreements. The purchase price owing by Zambeef to RCL FOODS in terms of the Options is as follows: - in respect of Zam Chick – USD 14,250,000.00; and - in respect of Zamhatch – USD 4,000,000.00 capital plus USD 6,159,174.53 of shareholder loans, (collectively, “the Settlement Consideration”). 3. Dispute There is a dispute between RCL FOODS and Zambeef with regard to the computation of the purchase price to be paid for the Zamhatch shares by Zambeef. Zambeef contends that the portion of the purchase price payable by it for the capital contribution by RCL FOODS to Zamhatch should comprise the Zambian Kwacha value of the capital contribution at the time that it was originally paid (in USD) by RCL FOODS. This amounts to ZMW 24,800,000.00. RCL FOODS contends that the amount payable to it ought to be the USD amount originally paid, being USD 4,000,000.00. On the Zambeef version, this results in a reduction in the amount payable to RCL FOODS of approximately USD 1,807,250.22 (based on an exchange rate of USD 1.00: ZMW 11.31 as at 23 March 2016). In addition, Zambeef argues that a portion of the RCL FOODS loan account in Zamhatch was paid in Euros, and ought to be denominated in Euros as opposed to USD. The Euro amount paid by RCL FOODS was Euro 3,301,849.53. Again, RCL FOODS is of the view that this amount should also be denominated in USD as at the date of payment, being USD 4,159,174.53. On the Zambeef version, this results in a reduction in the amount payable to RCL FOODS of approximately USD 466,656.60 (based on an exchange rate of USD1.00: Euro 0.8942 as at 23 March 2016). If the matter is not resolved, RCL FOODS will pursue its contractual remedies in terms of the Shareholders’ Agreements. 4. Rationale for the exercise of the Options RCL FOODS is of the opinion that its interests in Zambeef (indirectly held through Zam Chick and Zamhatch) would be better aligned with the shareholders of Zambeef if RCL FOODS’ indirect investments were to be exchanged for a direct interest in Zambeef, the listed holding company of the Zambeef group of companies. Hence, the RCL FOODS board of directors (“the Board”) took the decision that the Options should be exercised. Zambeef has indicated that the exchange mechanism provided for in the terms of the Options may be considered by some Zambeef shareholders as unduly dilutive for such shareholders. As a result, the Board proposed that, subject to certain considerations, the existing Zambeef shareholders should be given the opportunity of reducing the potential dilution to which they would be exposed if some, or all, of the Settlement Consideration is settled by way of new Zambeef shares. In order to counter any potential dilution, existing Zambeef shareholders will be given the opportunity to buy back a portion of the new Zambeef shares issued to RCL FOODS, by way of a claw-back offer. In terms of the claw-back offer, existing Zambeef shareholders will, in proportion to their respective shareholdings in Zambeef, be able to buy back some of the Zambeef shares received by RCL FOODS. Should the Settlement Consideration result in RCL FOODS holdingmore than 25.1% in Zambeef, it will make available for the claw-back offer, RCL FOODS’ interest above 25.1%. The shares made available by RCL FOODS for purposes of the claw-back offer will be offered to Zambeef shareholders at the same price that such shares have been issued to RCL FOODS, except for any potential costs and taxes associated witrh the claw- back offer, which will be for the account of participating Zambeef shareholders. From an administrative and regulatory point of view, RCL FOODS will issue a circular to all Zambeef shareholders, detailing the termsof the claw-back offer. RCL FOODS will liaise with the management of Zambeef and the SEC in Zambia in this regard. RCL FOODS will also seek a dispensation from the SEC to ensure that, in the event that the Settlement Consideration results in RCL FOODS is holding more than 35% of Zambeef, it will be granted the opportunity to sell down sufficient shares so as not to trigger a mandatory offer to the Zambeef shareholders. 5. General RCL FOODS is aware that Zambeef management has been mandated by its board of directors to actively work towards reducing Zambeef’s current debt position. Over the past few months RCL FOODS has been in discussions with Zambeef management in respect of possible mechanisms to inject capital into Zambeef. The Board is of the view that should RCL FOODS become a shareholder in Zambeef, RCL FOODS would like to continue with these discussions. RCL FOODS is of the opinion that Zambeef is an attractive business that, pursuant to an injection of new capital, could materially improve its overall performance. RCL FOODS thus remains interested in considering opportunities that could lead to a more substantial transaction between RCL FOODS and Zambeef. The transaction referred to above is not subject to JSE Limited (“JSE”) Listings Requirements due to its size being below the JSE category thresholds, and is only subject to a number of non-material conditions precedent. Shareholders are advised that Zambeef is also today publishing an announcement simultaneously on the AIM and Lusaka Stock Exchanges.

$ exchange rate is deciding factor for me. It doubled last Summer and hasn't recovered very much since then. Even if operations continue to do well they have an uphill task and any new cash demand won't make life easier
My interpretation was that they need to pay out a lot of cash that they currently don't have. Solutions would appear to be more debt or an equity issue, result is falling share price - poor management really.
wtf is all that about ?? would need 15 cups of coffee and 3 hours to try and understand.....anyone had a go ? certainly the share price has tried to understand it ....?

According to the report by the leading accountancy firm, Zambeef’s revenue grew by 23 percent in 2013, only surpassed by Botswana’s Choppies Enterprise Ltd, and out-stripping the trajectories of other big-name brands such as Spar, Shoprite, Mr Price, Woolworths and Foschini. The home-grown Zambian success story was also ranked as the 20th largest retailer on the continent by revenue. Zambeef Joint CEO Carl Irwin attributed the growth to its major focus on building a strong retail and distribution network. “Zambeef’;s retail and distribution network has been structured to ensure customers have easy and convenient access to all our products. The retail network is predominately focused on the group’s cold chain food products division which is at the heart of the company’s operations. The division, which includes the production, distribution and retailing of beef, chicken, pork, fish, dairy products and eggs, is expected to drive the growth of Zambeef in 2016,” he said. The company’s retail drive has seen the upgrade of existing outlets and roll out of new ultra-modern "macro" outlets offering meat, dairy and eggs alongside stockfeed and day-old chicks in strategic locations nationwide in a move that has met with an overwhelming response from customers. In 2015 alone, Zambeef grew its retail outlet network to 150 stores from the previous 139 with several more stores planned for 2016 by the company directly as well as through its partnership with Shoprite. With this in mind, Zambeef hopes to roll out more of its macro-outlets or ‘one-stop̵7; outlets across the country so customers can purchase all its products in one place. In addition to its own branded outlets, Zambeef’s 20-year-old partnership with Shoprite has also helped the company grow; Shopritehas eight new stores planned for 2016 to make a total of 34 Shoprite butcheries throughout Zambia that are operated by Zambeef. That strategic relationship with Shoprite also extends to Nigeria and Ghana where the supermarket chain is rolling out seven additional stores in the coming year. Based on year-on-year revenue growth for the Top 10 fastest growing retail companies, Zambeef’s revenue increased by 23 per cent in 2013 with a composite annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.4 per cent from 2011-2013 representing a retail revenue of US $171.8 million. In the Top 25 African retail companies Zambeef generated US $229.6 million recording a 7 per cent year-on-year growth bringing its year-on-year to 11.7 per cent. The report mirrors Deloitte’s annual Global Powers of Retailing report with a focus on Africa and features 25 of the continent’s listed retail companies based on revenue. It also will explore some of the emerging retail trends on the continent as well as track progress of the top African retail performers on the continent. Overall, Zambeef emerged as the 20th Top African retailer. -Ends- About Zambeef Products Plc Zambeef Products Plc is one of the largest integrated food companies in Zambia and the region.

hhhmmm, floods to droughts to currency woes : all part of the risks to this company of course ; and yes, the people of Zambia must have very difficult lives to counter, the dollar is weakening and this should have some benefit to the co's dollar denominated debt levels. to me and from the chart, these shares seem to want to continue higher
