The highlights are:
A dividend of £8m was paid to shareholders in June 22 (after year end)
The Government Lifeline grant was increased by further £106k, taking the total now received to £1.93m
Directors pay rose from £598k to £653k.
Normal operating profits are now £18.9m, an operating profit margin of 26.6% which is record profitability based on recent years!
Excluding furlough support (which every company got), Wightlink received a covid insurance policy claim of £9.16m as well as the lifeline grant from the Government totalling £1.93m mentioned above. As a result of this they never made a loss (in a full accounting year) due to covid and are now at record profits just one year later.
