It’s not a cliché, the executive directors of Safari Investments did start 2019 off on a positive and productive note.
They have had several meetings with major shareholders and institutional investors to present Safari’s interim results and its strategies. Which in turn also allowed the opportunity for both parties to earnestly discuss Safari’s business possibilities, answer questions and share knowledge of the industry. This approach forms part of the new Investor Relations programme to promote Safari Investments with the market and its shareholders.
The team has met with the Women’s Development Business team and undertook a site visit to the newly opened Nkomo Village in Atteridgeville. A visit to Rustenburg also allowed a session with the many Rustenburg shareholders, most of them being part of the Safari group since inception. A quick fly-down to Durban to meet with the Bridge Fund team also rendered a good opportunity to gain insights from their house-view and detailed market knowledge. Further meetings with other institutional investors are scheduled for the remainder of January and first part of February.
Dirk Engelbrecht (CEO) and Willem Venter (CFO) both concurred that investors and shareholders form an integral part of business. One of the new executive teams’ key focus points is to maintain solid relationships with these parties.
Regular sessions, perhaps coinciding with site-visits and roadshows form part of the planning for 2019.
