The mainboard-listed agribusiness has declared a one-tier tax exempt interim dividend of 3.5 Singapore cents per ordinary share for the current financial year.

OLAM International on Monday posted a nearly 29 per cent rise in net profit to S$147.7 million for the second quarter ended June 30 on growth in its food category, up from S$114.9 million a year ago.

This came on the back of a 31 per cent increase in revenue from S$4.98 billion last year to S$6.52 billion, due mainly to higher sales volumes across most business segments, particularly the food category.

Earnings per share came up to 4.70 Singapore cents, up from 3.93 in the previous year.
