Earnings Per Share (EPS) is the one of the important indicators while analyzing the profitability of the company. Higher EPS is more preferable to the investors as it will translate into higher dividends. Hence, investors value companies with greater EPS and provide higher share prices to those companies.
Earnings Per Share (EPS) is calculated by dividing the net profit of the company by its total number of shares. Here, we have calculated the EPS of non-life (general) insurance companies of Nepal.
Note: The Earnings Per Share (EPS) of non-life (general) insurance companies is based on the unaudited fourth quarter report of the fiscal year 2076/77. Hence, after the audit, the numbers may vary.
The table below ranks the non-life insurance companies of Nepal based on the Earnings Per Share (EPS) for the fiscal year 2076/77.
