Recently, CII also passed a number of reports prior to the annual shareholders’ meeting this year. Under the plan, the company targets a revenue of VN?6.3 trillion and after-tax profit of VN?1.21 trillion in 2018.
It also proposed shareholders to temporarily not pay dividends for 2017 and retain all profits for the new investment. The expected dividend rate in 2018 is 31 per cent per annum. From 2019 onwards, dividends are expected to be paid as in previous years, ranging from 12-20 per cent per year.
As of December 31, 2017, CII had more than VN?2.22 billion in short-term debt and nearly VN?7.17 trillion in long-term debt, including over VN?1.34 trillion bonds. — VNS
