Choppies will on Monday begin trading its shares on the Botswana Stock Exchange after its suspension was lifted.

On November 1, 2018, Choppies was suspended from trading on the BSE with immediate effect after the chain’s supermarket’s failure to publish its audited annual financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2018.

Choppies securities were to remain suspended until it complied with the BSE requirements or until further notice.
