Listen to the audio of CFO Mutale Mukuka and MD Owen Silavwe, providing greater insight into our the growth our Zambian operations and Nigerian investment in AEDC at the presentation of the half year results on Friday 14th November 2014.
AEDC, though having reported a loss for the half year to date, is sufficiently able to cater for its day to day operating requirements on account of a supportive regulatory and policy environment:-
Zambian operations remain robust with good growth prospects;
Federal Government of Nigeria recognises need to support private sector efforts in delivering additional power to Nigerians and the private sector is working to achieve the goals of the sector;
Presently the Nigerian business issues are complex and the sector is evolving quickly from a policy and regulatory perspective;
Board and management remain committed to our current strategy and believe that the risk of these structural issues will be more than compensated for by the long term potential of Nigeria;
Our strategy is underpinned by tangible Government and regulatory support.
