Zambeef Products PLC - Zambia-focused cold chain foods and retail business - Expects revenue, adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation and reported pretax profit for the year ended September 30 to be in line with current market expectations.

Expects its full-year results to be released by the end of November 2022. ‘The period saw an escalation in key input prices such as fuel, chemicals, and fertiliser which impacted margins. In addition, the group saw outbreaks of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia and African swine fever, both of which were successfully managed, in line with government guidelines. Despite these headwinds, performance in Cropping, Milling, and Stockfeed enabled the group to achieve adjusted Ebitda in line with market expectations owing to high grain prices, market share gains, and cost containment,’ the company says.
