The company posted a growth of 9.7 percent in its earnings per share during the year ending on December 31, 2019.
Earnings per share stood at Tk3.39 in 2019 as compared to Tk3.09 in 2018, as shown in the DSE website.
The dividend recommended by the board of directors of the company was 15 percent in cash and 5 percent in stock in 2019, while in 2018 the company provided 10 percent dividend in cash and 10 percent in stock.
In turn, the stock price on Tuesday made a loss of 3.8 percent to close at Tk53.8 per share.
