Provident brings back dividend

Jul 31, 2019 - The Daily Telegraph (London)

Provident Financial is attempting to put a recent hostile bid from smaller rival Non-Standard Finance behind it by reinstating its half-year dividend and revealing better-than-expected growth at credit card business Vanquis Bank. It also revealed that finance chief Simon Thomas, who recently had a heart operation, will leave the business permanently in March 2020 for health reasons.
