Is Temple & Webster set to give any dividends soon – ASX: TPW?

Wednesday, Jul 25 2018 by

Temple & Webster’s (ASX: TPW) Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Coulter had warned investors not to expect dividends in the foreseeable future, stating that the online furniture retailer will continue investing, while the company is finally making a profit. The EBITDA for Temple & Webster was $300,000 in the half year ending June, which was in line with its promise to reach profitability during 2018. The company achieved this following the 25 percent increase in active customer numbers and a 24 percent rise in revenue.

In the June quarter, the company completed the year with a cash balance of $9.9 million and had net cash flows of $600,000.
