Meanwhile, CFI’s historical revenue for the five months that concluded on February 28, 2023, totaled $30.2 billion, a 283% increase over revenue of $7.8 billion the previous year.Gross profit rose 346% to $8.1 billion from $1.8 billion in the comparative period.
Net finance costs of $4.6 billion were incurred compared to $126 million in the prior year, mainly as a result of major movements in the exchange rates between the two periods.
“Included in the finance costs are unrealised exchange losses from USD-denominated loans, which amounted to $3.8 billion,” acting group chief executive officer Shingi Chibanguza told shareholders attending the CFI’s annual general meeting.
“Lastly, the group recorded a loss before IMT tax of $1.4 billion compared to a profit of $343 million for the same period last year. The losses mainly emanate from the unrealised exchange losses.”
In the outlook, Chibanguza said the group’s management is concentrating on expanding the companies and revitalizing all operations to regain lost market share and provide shareholders with reasonable returns – Harare
