The large-cap company declared 50 percent cash dividend.
â€œThe company is yet to disclose the full financial statement but it is expected that the drop in earnings is due to adjustments in financial charges,â€ said BRAC EPL, a market analyst.
LankaBangla Securities said: â€œGP most likely saw decelerating growth in fourth quarter as BTRC's 10 second-pulse requirement put a downward pressure on top line growth.â€
