jlk- PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (Persero) Tbk. (BBRI), or BRI, has announced a cash dividend distribution of IDR 48.1 trillion.

This decision was made during the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (RUPST) held on Friday, March 1, 2024.

The dividend is equivalent to 80% of BRI’s consolidated net profit for the fiscal year 2023.

With 151.55 billion outstanding shares, the dividend per share from BRI reaches IDR 319 per share.

The 2024 RUPST also approved changes to the company’s board of directors. RUPST honorably dismissed and reappointed Catur Budi Harto as BRI’s Vice President Director, Agus Noorsanto as Director of Wholesale & Institutional Business, and Agus Sudiarto as Director of Risk Management.

The meeting also dismissed Hendrikus Ivo as Independent Commissioner and appointed Haryo Baskoro Wicaksono as BRI’s Independent Commissioner. Baskoro’s appointment is still pending approval from the Financial Services Authority (OJK).

BRI’s decision to distribute a cash dividend of IDR 48.1 trillion demonstrates their commitment to providing optimal returns to shareholders.

With a positive performance in 2023, BRI hopes to continue making a significant contribution to shareholders and the Indonesian economy as a whole.
