The company recently announced its Q4 and full-year results for 2022, with record profits. The company posted an increase of 31% in its net profits to $2.4 billion in 2022. For the full year, revenues increased by 11.6% to $73.4 billion, owing to strong demand in the Feed and Industrial Products segments.

The company also announced a final dividend of S$0.11 per share during the results, leading the total dividend to S$0.17 per share.

Analysts are upbeat about the strong performance and stable dividends of Wilmar. The company delivered two back-to-back years of higher profits despite the volatility in the commodity markets. Analysts anticipate that the opening of the Chinese economy will boost the company’s sales in the future. Also, the margins could improve with some relief in higher commodity prices.
