Dividend 30 cents a share
Earnings were mainly brought down by KES 2.8bn loss on financial assets at fair value vs 2014 gain of KES 4.1bn. The Company attributed the decline in value of financial assets to poor performance of the securities market. Gross earned premiums grew by 38% to KES 20.3bn but was offset by 32% increase in net claims and benefits to KES 10.6bn. The Groups net loss ratio contracted by 200bps to stand at 62% vs 2014s 64%, implying improved claims management in the period. Investment income was up 31% to KES 4.55bn. Loss after tax stood at KES 1.0bn vs 2014 PAT of KES 2.5bn, hence loss per share stood at KES 0.50 down from an EPS of KES 1.31.
These Earnings were better than expected in fact.
