Over the past financial year, the effects of the pandemic continued to roil the world and the global economy. Mauritius, for its part, continued to operate in a very volatile socioeconomic environment. On the one hand, the tourism sector remained at a standstill until October 2021, with adverse ripple effects across many other industries. On the other hand, we saw encouraging signs of recovery in construction, financial services and manufacturing, with businesses learning how to adapt to the ebbs and flows of supply chain challenges and consumer demand. Whilst we emerged safely from a sanitary crisis, it was only to be faced with rising inflation and the war in Ukraine, both of which are causing food and commodity prices to escalate and are likely to further threaten employment and livelihoods.
Amid this maelstrom, Cim Finance maintained its positive growth momentum and delivered an excellent financial performance. Our figures, shared in greater detail by our Group CEO in his interview, speak for themselves. This has enabled us to continue creating long-term value for our shareholders through sound returns. The Board declared a final dividend of MUR 0.24 per share for the financial year, a healthy pay out given the operating environment.
