Thanks to a strong Twelve Trailing Months (TTM) the CSE managed to secure a market capitalization of just over LKR 4 trillion and the All Share Price Index (ASPI) surpassed 9000 points.

The market traded at a 40% discount with peers to the MSCI frontier market index and a 37% discount price to book value basis. The market was able to retain these discounted rates trading at PER of 10.9 times.

ExpoLanka Holdings, LOLC Finance, Hayleys Group, Dipped product, and Royal Ceramics contributed to elevating the CSE’s position as the high turnover generators.
