Explaining the rationale behind the delay, the board said, “This is due to the commencement of the interim audit of the company’s commercial banking subsidiary, First City Monument Bank Limited, for the period ended September 30, 2018.”

Companies listed on the local bourse are required to file in their results not more than 30 days after the end of the period under review.
