CIM GROUP REPORTS A PROFIT AFTER TAX (PAT) OF MUR 83.4M FOR THE QUARTER ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2020
Cim Group posted a PAT of MUR 83.4M, down 8% on prior year figure. The Group’s Net Operating Income increased by 2.6% to reach MUR 521.3M for the period under review. The result of the first quarter was driven by the Finance cluster which recorded a growth in Net Operating Income on the back of an expansion of its lending book at an albeit subdued pace when compared to the pre- Covid19 period. The results were also positively impacted by measures taken to contain costs across the Group.
Given the persisting morose economic environment, allowance for credit impairment was MUR 113.9M, up as compared to same period last year.
While vaccination campaigns around the world and in Mauritius are underway, the international and domestic business and economic horizons still remain uncertain and challenging with no clear visibility on how long it would take for countries to recover. The Group will thus continue to exercise prudence and reinforce measures put in place to mitigate the downside risks caused by pandemic.
