  • Bank makes cautionary statement to meet Section 9.8 of BSE Listing Requirements


Stanbic Bank Botswana Limited has issued a cautionary announcement indicating a prospective surge of more than P50 million in profit before tax for the year ended 31 December 2023.

Stanbic Bank has promptly disseminated the cautionary announcement via XNews in order to be in compliance with Section 9.8 of BSE Listing Requirements, as it possesses potentially price-sensitive information.

“The profit before tax for the year ended 31 December 2023 is expected to be between 10 percent and 20 percent higher than that reported for the comparative period ended 31 December 2022.”
