ZHL announces termination of proposed capital raise in Emeritus International


Harare – Zimbabwe Stock Exchange – listed financial services group, Zimre Holdings Limited (ZHL) said that the negotiations at its subsidiary Emeritus International Reinsurance Company Limited’s capital raise have been terminated.

“Shareholders of ZHL are referred to the cautionary announcement dated 10 September 2019, and are advised that the negotiations for the Emeritus International Reinsurance Company Limited Capital Raise have been terminated and the contents referred to in the cautionary announcement dated 10 September 2019 have ceased to have any relevance or effect on ZHL.

“Accordingly, caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in the securities of ZHL,” Group Chairperson Lovemore Madzinga said in cautionary statement.

ZHL was reportedly seeking to raise US$10 million at its subsidiary Emeritus Reinsurance to recapitalise the regional operations.

Emeritus Reinsurance was born out of the Group’s restructuring thrust earlier in 2018 and was rebranded from Baobab Reinsurance.

Commenting on the strategy then, the Group said Emeritus Reinsurance will provide a vehicle to mobilise offshore capital required to strengthen operations and embark on regional expansion.
