State-owned Cyprus Asset Management Company (Kedipes) on Thursday reported that its board has decided that its state aid repayment for the first quarter of 2023 will be capped at €60 million.

According to the announcement, the decision was taken during the company’s most recent board meeting, which took place on Wednesday at Kedipes’ offices in Nicosia.

In addition, Kedipes noted that since its inception, the company has paid €940 million to the state.

Moreover, the company explained that the amount was determined after the board took into account Kedipes’ high cash reserves, which after the latest payment of €60 million, are estimated to hover near that €140 million mark.

The company’s cash reserves were boosted by the sale of a number of high-value properties, which were concluded in recent months.

Finally, the company said that its cash reserves and cash inflows are expected to satisfactorily cover the initial needs arising from the imminent implementation of the ‘Rent for Installment scheme, which Kedipes has been tasked with implementing.
