 (吉隆坡12日訊)馬鋼鐵(MASTEEL,5098,主要板工業)宣佈,為截止2012財年底,派發中期單層稅制股息每股1仙。

 文告指出,該公司將根據截至11月16日的投資者紀錄,于12月10日派發中期股息給投資者。

 馬鋼鐵在截止6月30日第2季,營業額達到3億4410萬令吉,主要是在巴生谷地區的兩家工廠營運效率提升,加上鋼鐵產品需求增加。

 第2季淨利增長22.7%至1900萬令吉,主要原因來自高售價和利潤提高。每股盈利(EPS)按年提高至9.02仙。

 馬鋼鐵總執行長拿督斯里戴賢龍說,這是馬鋼鐵有史以來首次發放中期股息,這代表我們對國內工業的前景依然很樂觀,這都歸功于政府給予許多獎掖促進基礎設施發展所帶來的效果。

 為此他相信,吧生谷一帶將會是一個適合他們拓展未來業務的好地方。
