Attock Petroleum Limited’s (APL) profit dropped 33% to Rs12.46 billion in fiscal year 2022-23 (FY23) ended June 30, 2023 on account of higher cost of sales.

The company had registered a profit of Rs18.54 billion in the same period of the previous year, according to a notice sent to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Tuesday.

Earnings per share fell to Rs100.15 in FY23 compared to Rs148.99 in the SPLY.

The board of directors recommended a final cash dividend of Rs15 per share i.e. 150%. This is in addition to interim dividend already paid at Rs12.5 per share i.e. 125%.

The company booked net sales of Rs473.94 billion in the FY23, which was 28% higher than sales of Rs370.07 billion in the SPLY.
