Previously, on April 26, Refrigeration Electrical Engineering Corporation paid a 2023 cash dividend at a rate of 10%, with the record date of April 15.

Thus, the total dividend ratio for 2023 of REE is 25%, which is also the plan approved at the recent 2024 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.

In terms of business results, in the first quarter of 2024, Refrigeration Electrical Engineering Corporation recorded revenue of VND 1,837.5 billion, down 22% over the same period, and after-tax profit of VND 549 billion, down 48% over the same period.

The sharp decline in first-quarter 2024 profit was mainly due to the increase in cost of goods sold, leading to a plunge in gross profit, along with a significant decrease in profit from joint ventures and associates compared to the previous year.

In 2024, Refrigeration Electrical Engineering Corporation sets a business plan with revenue of VND 10,588 billion, up 23% over the same period, and after-tax profit of VND 2,409 billion, up 10% over the same period.
