  • In: Equity Bank – read a recent  Equity Bank analysis report.
  • Out: Britak, Uchumi
  • Increase: Took up all of the Diamond Trust Bank rights
  • Decrease: none
  • Unexpected gains/losses: Kenol suspension was listed, Bonus share of Stanbic Uganda bonus was issued (4 new for every existing share)
