Linkage Assurance grows profit by 894%

Underwriting firm, Linkage Assurance Plc, has rewarded its shareholders with a bonus issue of one for four shares by the capitalisation of N1 billion from the company’s general reserve account.


This is coming on the heels of tremendous achievements made by the company in 2019 financial year when it recorded a gross premium written of N6.52 billion from N5.39billion in December 2018, a 21 per cent increase, while profit before tax (PBT) also increased from N134.70 million in 2018 to N1.34billion, representing an 894 per cent increase.


Speaking during its 26th Annual General Meeting held in compliance with Covid-19 directives, Chairman of the Company, Chief Joshua B. Fumudoh, said despite the increasingly difficult operating environment, Linkage Assurance made appreciable progress in all fronts.


He said the company achieved an underwriting profit of N409 million in 2019, compared to the N772 million losses in 2018, while net claims paid was N1.7 billion compared to N2.7 billion.


“The significant reduction in net claims was a result of improved underwriting and effective reinsurance arrangement,” Fumudoh said. Shareholders, who attended the meeting, including Sir Sunny Nwosu, National Coordinator, Independent Shareholders Association of Nigeria and Mr. Boniface Okezie, Chairman, Progressive Shareholders Association of Nigeria; Mrs. Bisi Bakare and Mr. Nona Awoh, applauded the b


oard and management for such a wonderful result in 2019. They also appreciated the bonus issue, describing it as palliative to shareholders particularly at this time, expressing optimism that Linkage is positioned to pay better dividends in the coming years.


Fumudoh in his further remarks commended the management and staff for the performance of the company, stating that they demonstrated uncommon commitment and dedication to the growth of the business despite the stiff competition and the harsh operating environment.


Also speaking at the meeting, the Managing Director/CEO of Linkage Assurance, Mr. Daniel Braie, said during the year under the company review crafted a Five-Year Strategic Road Map that will guide its operations in achieving both her short and long term goals.

The four strategic pillars in line with its Balanced Scorecard Framework, Braie noted, included Business Growth, Financial Excellence, Operational Excellence and Customer Intimacy


“In line with our strategic focus and business growth initiatives, the last quarter of 2019 was our starting point in delivering on our Strategy. Using an agile approach and with strong dedication, we were able to achieve a significant milestone in revenue.


This achievement acted as a catalyst to our desire to do more for both our shareholders and the customers,” he said. According to him, the company has embarked on digital transformation to improve her services especially to the millennials and remote customers.
