A brief financial performance of the company
Fundamentally the company hasn’t been performing well in the past year years as the revenue is declining constantly, The company reported its sales numbers as £66B in 2019 which declined to more than 78% in 2022, The company reported its revenue as just £14B. This has been reflected in the LGEN stock price which was more than 28% down from 2019.
However, for 2 years the company has been doing something that is in their control, cutting off the general and admin expenses. This may have not yet impressed the investors but it has certainly helped in increasing the net income of the company.
This net profit increase can be further seen with the increasing price-to-earnings ratio. This has also helped the company maintain its dividend yields which declined during the past years. At present the dividend per share of the company is £0.18 while the dividend yield is 7.76%.
