Word from Mr Linus Gitahi, C.E.O
A Strong Six Months Performance
Last week the Group released its unaudited half-year group results for the six months to 30th June 2011. The Group delivered a turnover of Kshs.5.1 billion up 15.2% over same period in 2010. Profit before tax of Kshs.1.1 billion jumped 25.1% over 2010. These are good results especially if contrasted against a difficult trading period characterized by high inflation and inputs costs. As shareholders you will be gratified that the board of directors has resolved to declare an interim dividend of Kshs.1.50 for the period on the issued share capital. The total dividend payout will amount to Kshs.235.7 million which is the same as the half-year payout in 2010.
