The company registered strong topline growth with improved quality of business in most of the lines of business. However, because of the prevailing market conditions, the valuation of our shares portfolio at the Nairobi Securities Exchange has significantly dropped. The group focused on cost control measures resulting in lower operating expenses in 2018 which benefited the bottom line. Property valuations remained fairly flat in Kenya. As pace setters in insurance financial reporting, we have adopted IFRS 9 and the impact of this is included in the financial statements.

The directors recommend the payment of a first and final dividend of Ksh.0.13 per share totalling to Ksh 340 m (2017 Ksh 313 m). The dividend is subject to shareholders approval and payment will be subject to withholding tax. The payment will be made on or about 31st May 2019 to the shareholders registered at the close of business on 30th April 2019.


Curiously they only made 3cents in H2
However, this bias has been seen before.

Strong Earnings. Expanding regionally into Sudan and Uganda.

Kenyas CIC Insurance plans to expand its business to South Sudan and Uganda this year Reuters

Kenyas CIC Insurance plans to expand its business to South Sudan and Uganda this year after profits more than doubled last year due to a jump in underwriting and investment income, the firm said on Wednesday.

The insurer, in which Co operative Bank is the single largest shareholder, said it planned to create a subsidiary in South Sudan [will hold 69% whilst COOP Bank South Sudan will hold 31%] and acquire a 40 percent stake in Uganda Cooperative Savings and Credit Union.

Insurance is viewed as a growth sector in the east Africa, because of low penetration rates, with less than 5 percent of the population having any form of insurance cover.

CIC said regional expansion was one avenue for growth. Others the company said it was pursuing included micro insurance, new channels of distribution and diversification of investment strategies.
