Zimind to hold annual listed firms survey

THE Zimbabwe Independent will hold the prestigious annual Quoted Companies Survey next month sponsored by Nedbank Zimbabwe.
The Zimbabwe Independent Quoted Companies Survey is an annual report, which measures the performance of firms listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE).
It will be held on September 18.
The event comes at a time when companies are finding innovative ways to continue operations amid a deepening economic crisis characterised by a crippling liquidity crunch, acute fuel and foreign currency shortages, currency volatility and runaway inflation which has since surpassed the 700% mark.
This has been worsened by the upsurge of the Covid-19 pandemic which has affected nearly 5 000 with more than 120 fatalities nationwide.
The premier event which will be held under the theme Soaring Above Turmoil: Business Post-Covid-19, will celebrate the fortitude of companies operating in this turbulent period.
Alpha Media Holdings (AMH) chief executive officer Kenias Mafukidze said the hosting of the event is testimony to the resilience of companies in the face of difficulties.
“As AMH we are once again excited about hosting this year’s Quoted Companies Survey. This really is testimony to the resilience of Zimbabwean companies which continue to defy the odds and swim against the grain of pessimism and doom,” Mafukidze said.
“There is enough reason to give up and surrender. But these champions decided to soldier on and for this we salute you.”
He hailed Nedbank for sponsoring the event.
“We would also want to thank Nedbank for their now perennial sponsorship for the event. If there is anything Covid-19 has taught us, it is that we are stronger and safer together and through this sponsorship Nedbank has paid tribute to the idea of supporting each other and showing light on our heroes,” Mafukidze noted.
“To the winning companies I would like to recognise and salute your commitment to the economy. Through this, you have also become inspirational to other corporates as testimony that perseverance, innovation and creativity are the pillars of sustainable business.”
Mafukidze said the recognition of the companies is appreciation of how they strive amid a challenging environment.
“With inflation at 737%, a ravaging global pandemic, you winning these awards in the mist of all these headwinds is AMH and Nedbank’s small way of saying thank you. Thank you for looking out for the economy, thank you for looking out for your staff and above all thank you for giving us hope,” he said.
“As AMH, our role is to simply be cheerleaders and do our part of recording history. And yes, we are proud to stand by the winners as they carve their spot in history. And to Nedbank, thank you once again for providing us with a pen to write this history. To Zimbabweans, though there is Covid-19, our God will look after us and this too shall pass. God bless Zimbabwe.”
