- Hi, I learned from the 2012 annual report that AviChina is going to distribute dividends, but no further information can be found from the HKEX and other website. Would you provide any information about this?
- Thanks for your question. The 2012 final dividend of RMB0.02 (equivalent to approximately HK$0.025165) per share (tax inclusive) will be paid to holders of H shares whose names appear on the register of members of the Company at the close of business on Wednesday, 26 June 2013. The 2012 final dividend is expected to be paid to holders of H shares of the Company on or before Wednesday, 28 August 2013. You may find detailed information on the website of HKEX and the announcement dated June 26 on our website.2013-07-26
- Why is the gross margin of entire aircraft so low in 2012? Is there any room for improvement?
- Thanks for your interesting in AviChina. The products of AviChina consist of entire aircraft and aero-parts & components. In 2012, the general gross margin of AviChina was 19.46%, which was in line with other aviation manufactures around the world, but the gross margin of entire aircraft was lower than that of aero-parts & components. In 2012, the gross margin of entire aircraft and aero-parts& components were 8.10% and 30.49% respectively, which was generally the same with 2011. AviChina will work hard to improve gross margin by expanding sales and exportation volume, and wining more orders from private market.2013-07-26
