He also revealed that NASCON’s operating profit before tax stood at N4 billion while profit after tax was N2.8 billion, showing growth of 25 per cent over 2011 results.

Shareholders who turned up in overwhelming numbers for the AGM were full of praises for the management and Board of NASCON for the remarkable financial performance.

They approved the payment of 90 kobo as dividend for every 50 kobo ordinary share held and described the company’s total dividend payout of N2.35billion as acceptable despite mounting challenges facing the industry.

He expressed happiness that NASCON was able to record a good financial performance despite these difficulties.

The NASCON Chairman assured shareholders of better prospect in 2013 with the commitment of the board and the management to sustaining its leadership in the sector and also expanding investments into other businesses including – seasoning, vegetable oil refining and tomato paste packaging.

Shareholders lauded the business expansion initiative, which is in line with the company’s vision and strategic intent of becoming the frontline foods’ business in Nigeria and is to be completed by the end of 2013 financial year.

Dangote on behalf of management and the board expressed sincere gratitude to shareholders for their unflinching support and assured them of a more rewarding future in years to come.
