The Shareholders of Africa’s leading hospitality brand, Transcorp Hotels Plc, have extolled the company for its impressive financial results for the year ended December 31, 2018. The congratulatory remarks were made at the company’s 5th Annual General Meeting, which took place at the Congress Hall of the iconic Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.

Following the company’s 26% increase in turnover, the shareholders have unanimously endorsed a final dividend of N1.14bn for the 2018 financial year. The final dividend translated to 15 kobo per ordinary share, which is a 20% improvement over the 12 kobo per ordinary share for 2017.

Speaking on the company’s growth milestones, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mr. Emmanuel N. Nnorom, said: “Transcorp Hotels Plc has exceeded the bar with an impressive turnover of N17.4 billion from N13.8 billion recorded in 2017, representing an improvement of 26%. This is an unprecedented achievement in the history of the company. It is a further demonstration of our ability to adapt quickly to a changing business environment while keeping pace with global best standards in hospitality.”

Nnorom also thanked the shareholders for their continued support and faith in the Board and Management of the company.

Commending the company for its overall performance, Patrick Ajudua, President, New Dimension Shareholders Association, said that Transcorp Hotels Plc is an embodiment of what privatisation in Nigeria should be. He further stated that good Corporate Governance and the presence of a focused Management team who are concerned with giving returns to shareholders are some underlying factors behind the company’s continued success.

The Managing Director/CEO, Mrs. Owen Omogiafo, reiterated the company’s commitment to quality and global standard customer experience, drawing on the varied international awards conferred on the Company. She said: “We are redefining the hospitality landscape in Africa and positioning our continent as a preferred destination for local and international tourists. Our numerous awards and recognition are proof of this.”

On the prospects for 2019, Mrs. Omogiafo noted: “Transcorp Hotels will continue to leverage on its unique value proposition and proven strategies to exceed 2018 performance.” She further said that growth and efficiency underpinned by a strong culture of service excellence and cost optimisation will drive the company.
