Zeco narrows loss to $2.1million


Struggling engineering concern Zeco Holdings has narrowed its loss to $2.1 million for the full year to December from $$4.7 million in prior comparative period on cost cuts, the company said at the weekend as it faces questions about its future as a going concern.

The firm’s administrative expenses, at $2 million ($2.6 million in FY13) continued to exceed revenue, at $500 000 ($604 000 FY13) by a significant margin.

Zeco, a serial offender against the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange listing rules, is two months behind the mandatory financial reporting deadline for firms with a December year-end.

Group chairman Phillip Chiyangwa said the delay was “due to the extra work and time required to ensure full disclosure relating to the discontinued operations”.

The company also announced that it had shut down its plastics business, Zimplastics which, according to Chiyangwa, “had become unviable with no prospects for recovery”. –The Source
