THE Lusaka Stock Exchange says more data has been made available in an attempt to attract more companies to list and boost wealth creation. And renowned author, Jonathan Walters, says corporates should make their data more readily available to ensure good corporate governance.
Speaking during the official launch of the Central African Stock Exchange (CASE) 2014 handbook in Lusaka on Thursday, acting LuSE board chairman, Timothy Mushibwe, said LuSE hoped that more companies would eventually list in view of updated information now made available about stock markets to enable more Zambians participate in their success.

“By making information more readily available, it is our intention to see more companies listing on the LuSE so that they can raise new funding to enable Zambians participate in their success. It is important to keep track of data on the market about companies and their stocks, and in this regard, the CASE handbook is a very useful tool in examining the key market indicators for each of the listed companies,” Mushibwe said.
He described the CASE handbook as a priceless document that would enable readers an insight into other stock markets and illuminate key data that would drive good business decisions.
“The CASE handbook will not only give the reader a glimpse into respective regional markets but also affords the reader the ability to compare data for similar industries in another market in the region,” he said.

And CASE author, Walters, called on corporate entities to make data more readily available to improve information flow.”Information in the region is incredibly hard to come by. There is a lot that corporates can do to improve information flows. A lot of annual reports and financial statements that come out from companies are written off a template. People who want to buy shares want to have access to statistics and there is nothing wrong with giving away basic data,” said Walters.

The CASE handbook 2014 showcases a comprehensive compilation of data and market analysis in several industries across Botswana, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and is available for purchase at a cost of US$30 or roughly K180.00.
