ZPI Transaction

  • Will my rights as a shareholder be affected if i don't accept the offer?

    It was deemed a suitable competitive strategy during the era as the economic landscape rewarded such initiatives and this was in line with the Group’s growth trajectory.

  • Why ZHL is not offering cash option?

    Our approach has been to retain value for all shareholders in an inflationary environment.

We believe ZPI shareholders looking to exit have a high probability of retaining value and exiting on their own terms when they dispose their new ZHL shares in the market.
