of the company into a ﬁnancial powerhouse for the transaction of insurance and other ﬁnancial services under one formidable umbrella.
“We have truly progressed in that journey, having received your unwavering support and unanimous approval to embark on all necessary processes.
“There is cheering news by colleagues on the Board having, once again, to the best of our abilities, carried out the assignment you gave us, to grow your investments in this going concern. I am therefore pleased to inform you that year 2022, as the results now before you show, was another good outing for us.
“We may not have achieved the very impressing outing we all continually craved
for, but our modest growth in key ﬁnancial indicators is a good way to bid the
quoted insurance stock farewell and welcome the Holding Company whose
formal birth shall be announced soon,” he stated.
