Six months ended 31 March 2017
Net operating income from continuing operations increased 17% to MUR695.4m compared to history with income in the Finance cluster showing a marked improvement of 21% due to increased lending volumes. The Property cluster also reported a healthy increase in revenues, up 18% over history.
