However it raised its dividend payout to shareholders 7.3 times translating to KSh1.99 billion as a result of increased financial muscle.

Also, the firm is expected to pay shareholders another dividend in the coming months from the gains of selling the subsidiary it had in Uganda.

Kapoor said, “This is the highest dividend shareholders will be getting and it is thanks to improved cash position

“This distribution has no relationship with Hima deal. This is purely based on fantastic performance on cash from operations in Kenya. We have enough money for our working capital and capital expenditure requirement for this year and we are expecting to general more.”
