Shares in retail giant OK Zimbabwe lost 7.55% after it had to delay its earnings report for the year ended 31 March 2023 which were due for publication on or before June 30, 2023.
“The major attributable cause of this delay is that the Company migrated to a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System at the beginning of the financial year under review, whose implementation has resulted in delayed finalisation of the Company’s Financial Statements,” the company said in a notice to shareholders.
“The Company and its External Auditors shall use best endeavours to ensure that the Audited Financial Results will be published by 31 August 2023.”
