The company is confident of growing at an accelerated rate which is aligned with our overarching strategy to enhance value for all stakeholders. For our shareholders, we continue with our policy of a high dividend payout ratio. We stand with our employees – our biggest assets and are happy to state that we not only announced increments and promotions during the year, but also paid a special incentive for all employees as the Company completes 40 years of successful operations. During this difficult time, Finolex Industries, in conjunction with our CSR Partner, Mukul Madhav Foundation, continues to support communities, in which we operate, with on-ground activities for Covid relief funded under its CSR initiatives.”

Finolex has always endeavored to create value for its shareholders. Earlier this year in January 2021, Finolex Industries had announced a share split which was received positively by the markets reflecting confidence in the long-term growth plans of the company. This has increased the liquidity of our shares and allows more investments through the open market, with the widening of the distribution of company stocks.

In line with our past history of healthy dividend payouts every year, the Board of Directors have recommended a final dividend of Rs. 2 per equity share and an additional one-time special dividend of Rs. 2 per equity share for this financial year. This is subject to approval from the Shareholders of the Company in ensuing Annual General Meeting.
