DIVIDEND

In view of the need to retain cash in the business and to strengthen the statutory capital requirements for the banking subsidiary, the Board has resolved not to pay a dividend.

OUTLOOK AND STRATEGY

The Group has continued to broaden the market catchment for the banking subsidiary by tapping into some segments of the mass market and this saw the launch in August 2016 of the NMBLite product offering which is targeted at the low income segment. The uptake of the mass market products has been encouraging and this has contributed to the financial inclusion agenda.

APPRECIATION

I would like to express my appreciation to our clients, shareholders and regulatory authorities for their continued support. I would also like to thank my fellow Board members, management and staff for their steadfast commitment, dedication and passion which has seen the achievement of these results in the face of an increasingly challenging operating environment.

B. A. CHIKWANHA
CHAIRMAN
