Imara Holdings Limited Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year Ended 30 April 2016

Imara Holdings Limited provided earnings guidance for the full year ended 30 April 2016. The company expects its financial results for the full year ended 30 April 2016 to reflect a loss. The loss will however be smaller than the attributable loss of BWP 15.25 million reported for the full year ended 30 April 2015. The reduced loss is partly due to the profit arising from the disposal of Imara SP Reid (Pty) Limited, South African stock broking subsidiary, which was concluded in June 2015 and included in the attributable profit of BWP 2.82 million reported for the half year ended 31 October 2015. The difficult trading conditions experienced by the group's operating businesses in the first half persisted into the second half of the year. Emerging markets in general and African markets in particular, also weakened, directly affecting the performance of asset management and stock broking businesses. The net cash proceeds from the disposal of ISPR are principally held in US Dollars and the Group has benefited from favourable currency movements on these funds.
