HANOI, April 24 (Reuters) - Vietnam’s top insurer Baoviet Holdings group said on Thursday it expects net profit for this year at 1.18 trillion dong ($56 million), or 4 percent lower than 2013.
Hanoi-based Baoviet has also projected a 7.2 percent rise in revenues in 2014 to 18.33 trillion dong, it said in a statement issued after shareholders approved the Hanoi-based group’s business targets earlier on Thursday.
The statement gave no reasons for the lower profit outlook.
Shares of the group closed down 1.58 percent at 37,300 dong ($1.77) each on Thursday, a day after state media reported that the former chief executive of the firm and two former senior officials faced police investigations for wrongdoings in management.
