EOH Holdings Limited sell-off: touching base


EOH Holdings Limited (EOH)

Riddled with dodgy Government deals, EOH, once the golden child of the market has lost its lustre over the last couple of years. Former CEO and Chair, Asher Bohbot would also resign from the board, effective 28 February 2019 as the share price continues to move lower.

To make things worse for the IT giant, it also lost the contract to be a Microsoft software licence reseller in March. EOH stated that Microsoft did not provide any reason for terminating its contract with EOH Mthombo, a subsidiary of EOH. It was later rumoured it was also due to a questionable defence contract.
