SINGAPORE –
Media OutReach – 12 August 2023 – Yangzijiang Financial Holding Ltd. (SGX:YF8) reported an impressive first half of 2023, with total income soaring 14.2% year-on-year to S$198.4 million and net profit to equity holders of the Company increasing 19.2% to S$162.5 million.

Diluted earnings per share (EPS) also skyrocketed 27.2% to SGD4.39 cents in 1H2023 compared to SGD3.45 cents in 1H2022, partly due to a 6.2% year-on-year decline in the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding to 3.65 billion shares.

Our diversified set-up for this portfolio, currently spanning across 4 different asset types, is designed to reduce portfolio volatility while still achieving strong returns for all our stakeholders in the long-run.”
