Nykaa to hold board meeting on 3 October to discuss issuance of bonus shares
In the April to June quarter of FY23, Nykaa’s consolidated net profit increased by over 43 percent to Rs 5 crore
Cosmetics and fashion retailer Nykaa announced on Wednesday that the company’s board will meet on 3 October to consider the issuance of bonus shares to its current shareholders. Bonus shares are additional shares that are provided to the company’s present shareholders at no additional cost, based on how many shares they presently possess. These are the company’s accumulated earnings, which are converted into free shares rather than being distributed as dividends.
“We would like to let you know that the Board of Directors of the Company will meet on Monday, 3 October 2022. At this meeting, the Board will, among other things, consider and approve the issuance of Bonus Shares to the equity shareholders of the Company in the ratio it may deem suitable, as well as seek postal shareholder approval and any other approvals it may deem necessary,” the company noted in a statement submitted to the exchanges.
