Credit granting is continuously being reviewed taking into consideration developments in month on month inflation and the need to manage the risk of loss of value on the Debtors book.


The regulatory environment and the deteriorating economic environment will continue to be a hindrance to normal trading.

The “managed exchange rate” for local US dollar sales will have a negative impact on financial performance.

The resurgence of inflationary pressures necessitates that the business reduces its exposure on Credit sales and focuses on Cash sales.

The lag in consumer income growth relative to increased inflationary pressures will reduce consumer disposable income.

The Business will focus on improving cash sales and productively controlling costs.
