Event Details

Profit has jumped 46 per cent for customer-owned Unison Group.

It achieved an after-tax profit of $40.7 million, compared with $24.6 million for the previous year to March.

An increased dividend of $12.7 million, from last year’s $9.7m, will be paid to Hawke’s Bay Power Consumers’ Trust, which owns Unison on behalf of Napier and Hastings power consumers, on August 2. Last year’s cheque to the 55,000 customers was for $150.

Retiring Unison chairman Kevin Atkinson said it was in its best-ever financial position and profits were expected to continue rising thanks to subsidiary investments such as ETEL’s purchase of Lucky Light Globalindo in Indonesia.
