The 2017 financial performance of the Group has been restated with the reported Profit before Tax down to KES 1,330Mn compared to KES1,963Mn. The reduction is largely attributable to a downward adjustment to the fair value of investment property in our Kenya Business

The Group recorded a Loss before Tax of -KES 480Mn versus a Profit before Tax of KES 1,330Mn in 2017 which is a 136% decrease.

"Our top line in terms of Gross Written Premium declined slightly by 1.8% to KES 18,770 Mn."

Investment income for the Group was down 20.4% due to poor performance of the equity market in Kenya. The Nairobi Securities Exchange 20 Share Index was down 23.5% in 2018 thus negatively impacting the Group’s holdings on the bourse.

No dividend

Financial services giant Old Mutual has failed to take an extra 6.5 per cent stake in UAP Holdings after a plan of converting the multinational’s Sh2.6 billion loan to the Kenyan insurer into shares was suspended.

UAP had announced that the loan-to-equity deal, meant to ease its debt burden, would be concluded in 2018 but the multinational has suspended the transaction indefinitely even as it amended the terms of the debt.
With the proposed deal shelved, UAP’s debt burden grew in the year ended December and saddled the company with higher finance costs, contributing to the Sh518 million loss in the period.

Its borrowings rose by Sh258 million to Sh11 billion in the review period while its finance costs increased by Sh245 million to Sh1 billion. Old Mutual provided the additional debt.

“There was an additional drawdown of an Old Mutual loan facility that was put in place in 2017,” Mr Mwangi said.

The proposed debt-to-equity transaction was part of UAP’s efforts to ease its heavy debt burden that had seen it explore multiple options, including renegotiating loan terms with financiers such as the International Finance Corporation (IFC).

UAP had taken the loan to fund construction of Equatorial Towers –an office building in Juba, South Sudan.

Deterioration of the financial performance of the company.
That price of ksh.244 is a huge con and needs to be significantly revised downwards

I cannot be sure in this moment that an investment plan with this company would be an good option, especially on a long run. Restating balance figures on down side due to fair value adjustments means that their investments in property are actually losing money

Actually the debt has now increased due to commercial lending rate
