HÀ NỘI — Quảng Ngãi Sugar JSC (UPCoM: QNS) will issue more than 58.5 million dividend shares for 2018 at the rate of 20 per cent.
That means each shareholder will receive 20 new shares for every 100 shares they own.
The value of the deal is VNĐ585 billion (US$25 million). The share issuance will help increase the firm’s charter capital to VNĐ3.5 trillion from VNĐ2.9 trillion.
Quảng Ngãi Sugar JSC will finalise the list of beneficial shareholders on May 10.
Last year, the company earned a record-high revenue of more than VNĐ8 trillion, boosting its post-tax profit up 20.6 per cent year on year to VNĐ1.24 trillion.
In the first quarter of 2019, the firm reported its revenue rose 25 per cent year on year to more than VNĐ2 trillion.
However, its post-tax profit fell 18 per cent year on year to VNĐ155 billion due to increased expenses for advertising and higher selling cost.
The company is trading more than 292.5 million shares on the Unlisted Public Company Market (UPCoM) with code QNS.
Its shares edged down 0.2 per cent to close Friday at VNĐ42,000 ($1.80) per share. — VNS
