BGFIBank Proposes $20 Dividend per Share for 2023

(Ecofin Agency) - In a recent meeting held on April 26, 2024, the board of directors of the banking group BGFI Group proposed distributing a dividend of CFA11,000 per share for FY2023. This remuneration is slightly lower than the CFA15,850 per share distributed in 2022 but remains generous considering the macroeconomic context in which the group operated across its various markets. The company opted to strengthen its fundamentals, even with a surge in its net profit reaching CFA95.8 billion, a 55% increase in 2023 compared to 35% in 2022.

On the commercial front, customer deposit balances stand at CFA3,311 billion, up by 9% from 2022. The BGFI Bank Group has garnered the trust of its clients in all markets where it operates. Simultaneously, the Group continued supporting the financing of economies and significant projects for its clients in the various markets of operation.

In a challenging environment marked by inflation and economic growth slowdowns, the group increased its customer loan portfolio to CFA3,075 billion, reflecting a 4% rise from 2022. The Bank emphasizes its commitment to effectively adapting to regulatory constraints, organizational changes, legitimate client needs, offering innovative products and services, and maintaining robust risk management to achieve the CFA120 billion target in 2024.
