Directors have declared a final, fully-franked dividend of 9c a share, making 10.75c
for the year.
"These much improved profit and dividend results are representative of the improvement across all of our businesses in the past year," Euroz said in a statement.
Revenue from its securities division rose 25 per cent on improved deal flow, with the business involved in 13 transactions raising $611 million during the year.
Its Westoz Funds Management arm also reported a stronger contribution and Euroz said it was encouraged by the early investor response to its Westoz investment Management joint venture with former MLC chief executive Steve Tucker.
