Cambria Africa, the investment company formerly known as Lonzim, is to buy out the minority holders of Zimbabwe-listed commercial printer Celsys, and through this become quoted itself on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange. Cambria currently owns three-fifths of Celsys. Cambria will offer a cash alternative to its share offer for Celsys; if every Celsys shareholder opts for the cash Cambria will end up paying $192,000. "We believe, given the exposure Cambria receives in Zimbabwe there will be an increase in liquidity of Cambria shares which will, in our view, lead to more efficient pricing of Cambria shares," said Edzo Wiseman, chief executive officer of Cambria. The company will also maintain its listing on London's AIM.
