The company will pay dividends of CoP$1,303 per share, a dividend never before delivered by the company, Portafolio reported.
This represents a 93% growth compared to 2020 figures.
ISA will pay an ordinary dividend of CoP$744 per share that is equivalent to 40% of net income, and an extraordinary dividend of CoP$559 per share, representing 30% of net income.
“We continue to respond to our shareholders, making their investment increasingly profitable, making the best decisions focused on maintaining leadership and competitive,” ISA’s Bernardo Vargas said.
