  1. Commendable performance by Vitafoam, especially in these difficult times. However, the proposed dividend which represents just 20% of the declared profit could have been better. Although one of the reasons could be, having a good portion of the profit in trade receivables.

  2. This is an impressive results coming out from Vitafoam Nigeria Plc for the year ended 30th September,2019 in an era of economic downturn. The board of directors and management should be highly applauded for being proactive in managing the affairs of the company. More grease to their elbow.
