A 120% appreciation in Other Operating Income from N19.386 million at FY2018 to N42.599 million at FY2019 also contributed to the firm’s profit.

Earnings Per Share is the profit that each unit of a company’s ordinary shares  yields  during a particular period. It is simply calculated by dividing the Profit After Tax by the company’s total outstanding shares.

Increase in a company’s EPS often reflects an improvement in its bottom-line while a fall, on the other hand, indicates a declining profit.
