AIICO paid claims of N 13 billion in 2015.

Profit before tax for 2015 is N 1.79 billion.

Profit after tax for 2015 is N 1.19 billion.

The dividend of 5 Kobo is something the investors in the Company will notice as management has returned earnings to them after a couple of years without any dividend so expect the stock to move higher. 

The most important thing for investors here that AIICO is the top Insurance Company of Nigeria that paid claims of 13 billion last year and is rewarding its shareholders with a dividend in a tough economic environment.
