The financial performance significantly improved in 2021 in line with the economic recovery and due to the successful investment program to extend and upgrade services, helping drive the digitalization of the nation.

Revenues for 2021 increased by 1.8% vs 2020 with the improvement driven by growth on fixed broadband and enterprise services due to the economic recovery.

The Company continued its focus on cost optimization measures considering the uncertainties due to the global pandemic and to ensure sustainable shareholder returns. These measures helped EBITDA to increase by 7.3% to MVR 1.4bn and Net Profit to increase by 11.0% to MVR 813m.

Earnings per share (EPS) improved by 11.0% to MVR 10.70 in line with the improvement in net profit.

In line with the Company’s commitment to provide returns to its shareholders, but in consideration of the ongoing challenges and future investment plans of the Company, the Board of Directors has proposed a full year dividend of MVR 6.20 per share, representing a 58% pay-out ratio of net profit. This is a reduction of MVR 1.03 per share (14.2%) vs the previous year.
