Willdale Limited launches upgraded investor relations website

By Published On: April 23rd, 2020

The clay brick manufacturing company, Willdale Limited (WILD.zw) has partnered with AfricanFinancials to upgrade their online investor relations section of their website to improve corporate and commercial information dissemination.

Through this partnership with AfricanFinancials, Willdale is offering a complete, accurate and up to date investor relations website section for investors to keep track of the company’s performance at a critically challenging time for the economy.

The company was listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE) in 2003 after a demerger from Mashonaland Holdings Limited and is the only brick company listed on the ZSE.

“We’ve upgraded our Willdale website to provide a more interactive and commercial experience for our customers who can order bricks online. It was a logical step for us to also satisfy our investors’ need for comprehensive investor relations and share price data,” says Mavuto Munginga, Willdale’s Finance Director.

Willdale’s investor relations website offers daily share prices, daily and weekly share trade information, the value of shares traded, valuation indicators and all-important company news and regulatory announcements. These include presentations, dividend announcements and annual reports. In a recent upgrade to The Investor Relations Dashboard product the value of shares traded and the EBITDA margins are also illustrated in the Willdale investor relations section.

“The Zimbabwe Stock Exchange requirement that all listed companies have websites is a great step forward to enabling a more progressive communications governance regime for ZSE listed companies and Willdale has taken this to the next level, to the extent that the commercial and governance offerings are combined to ensure their corporate website adds value to visitors,” says Rob Stangroom the Digital Manager of AfricanFinancials.
