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 commercial banks of Nepal.
Note: The Earnings Per Share (EPS) of commercial banks is based on the unaudited fourth quarterly report of the fiscal year 2077/78. Hence, after the audit, the numbers may vary.
