Absa keeps its powder dry, deferring dividends, as earnings slump
Absa will declare no annual dividend, the bank announced on Monday, despite its competitors reinstating pay-outs.
Its headline earnings per share dropped 58% (to 730.9 cents) in the year to 31 December 2020.
The lender’s credit impairments ballooned 163% (to R20.6 billion).
