Imperial employees benefit through the Ukhamba trust payout

Fifteen thousand current and former IMPERIAL employees received an average of R23 000 per employee through the Ukhamba empowerment scheme at the end of 2011.

A total of R350 million was distributed in terms of the Ukhamba schemewhich was launched in 2004 as an empowerment vehicle for IMPERIAL’s previously disadvantaged employees.  Employees paid a nominal fee for participation.

This payout is only part of the value which members hold in the scheme.  Ukhamba owns 10,1% of Imperial, as well as 31% of Distribution and Warehousing Network (Dawn), a listed company operating in the building supplies industry, as well as a few smaller investments.

Thembisa Dingaan, Chairman of Ukhamba Holdings said, “Ukhamba is now ready to share the wealth that has been generated over the years, with its shareholders and the members of the trust, many of whom are employees of IMPERIAL Holdings.”

On 5 March 2004 all previously disadvantaged IMPERIAL employees received units based on their respective length of service.  Even those who have left the company have retained these units and will continue to receive future payouts.

Hubert Brody, CEO of Imperial said, “IMPERIAL is delighted  that  the trust could make the payout and that long serving previously disadvantaged staff are now able to benefit.“

Four years ago, Ukhamba paid out an amount of R51m to employees of IMPERIAL in terms of a previous black empowerment scheme.  Participating employees contributed to that scheme, and made a very rewarding return on their investment.

    My many concern is that all the share holders ,as well unit holder should be informed accordingly on regarding the actual future of the unit holder this is a very serious matter .Any change we have wright to know or else we have to point a private consultant to have a look on our progress of our shares or unit.

    Please it is a matter of urgency on regarding the value of the unit at this point of time
