Gemadept also plans to continue divesting from real estate projects and afforestation projects in Cambodia to transfer ownership to potential partners, thereby ensuring the focus of resources and cash flow for projects in its core business.
Gemadept's afforestation project in Cambodia covers an area of nearly 30,000ha.
Cash dividend 20% in 2022
The company approved the 2022 cash dividend plan at the rate of 20 per cent and authorised the Board of Directors to implement the payment.
Gemadept announced it had temporarily suspended the plan to offer shares to existing shareholders approved on April 25, 2022. The reason given by the company was that the market conditions were not favourable for the continuation of the issuance plan.
