HDFC Q4 net profit jumps 26 per cent

The company, which saw income from interest fall during the period under review, had posted a net profit of Rs 733.37 crore a year ago, it said in a filing to the BSE.

The board has approved the subdivision of the company’s shares in the ratio of 1:5, that is one share of Rs 10 will be slit into 5 shares of Rs 2 each — which will make it the first stock split of HDFC shares in over one decade.

The board also proposed a dividend of 360 per cent or Rs 36 per share on the face value of Rs 10 each for the financial year 2009-10.
