The firm’s financial results for the year ended December 2023 filed with the Nigerian Exchange Limited showed that revenue improved by 47.3 per cent to N197bn from N134bn in 2022.

Operating expenses went up by 22.6 per cent year-on-year to N26.9bn due to the country’s high inflation in 2023.

Net finance cost increased by 46 per cent to N22.6bn, due to interest on foreign currency loans, which the group said had been repaid.

On a positive note, the group’s profit after tax improved 91 per cent year-on-year to N32.6bn, compared to N17.1bn in 2022.
