The company announced last week that it is considering selling off business units to create shareholder value for its investors.
At the time of the announcement, the company did not specify how much it hopes to raise from asset sales.
The firm, which is seeking expansion opportunities in Latin America and South-East Asia, informed investors on Wednesday that its board had initiated an investigation into various options available to Etion to unlock value for its shareholders.
Etion informed investors on Monday that its board had appointed Elvin de Kock, the current Group Chief Financial Officer, as the acting Group Chief Executive Officer from 1 February 2021.
“The board wants to thank Snowy and Teddy for their valuable contribution to the board over the years and wishes them well with their next endeavours,” the company said.
“The board is in the process of finding a replacement for the Chairperson and the Group Chief Financial Officer to the extent required and an announcement will be made in due course.”
