For the period ended 31 Mar 2023, CFSL’s bottom line result amounted to MUR 413.9M. The performance over the period has been encouraging with asset growth driving the revenue line. However, in an environment where key base rate is on the ascent, CFSL’s cost of funds has also been on the rise.
The Board has declared an interim dividend of MUR 0.18 per share. This dividend is in respect of the financial year ending 30 September 2023 and will be payable in full to all shareholders of the Company holding ordinary shares registered at close of business on 30 May 2023.
The payment of this dividend will take place on or about 14 June 2023. The shares of the Company will be traded cum-dividend on the Stock Exchange up to the market day of 25 May 2023 and ex-dividend as from 26 May 2023.
CFSL expects its results to be impacted by tightening margins over the coming months as financing cost follows the upward trend. The Board will adopt continued prudence in managing its baseline cost and loan portfolio.
