      Hub Power Company Limited (HUBCO), Pakistan's largest Independent Power Producer (IPP), saw its profit jump by nearly 110% to Rs62.01 billion in fiscal year 2023 that ended June 30.

      The company also announced a final cash dividend of Rs6 per share i.e. 60% for the year. This was in addition to the interim cash dividend already paid at Rs24 per share i.e. 240% during the fiscal year.

      On a consolidated basis, the IPP's turnover surged by nearly 18% to Rs114.3 billion during FY23, compared to Rs97.2 billion recorded in the prior year.

      On the other hand, the company's operating expenses declined by nearly 4% year-on-year, to Rs61.5 billion in FY23.
