List of Dividends announced so far in 2018

List of Dividends announced so far in 2018



Guinness Nigeria AGM

As audited accounts start to trickle in, companies will propose dividend payments to their shareholders as recommended by their respective boards of directors. It is also important to track these announcements to know who is eligible to collect the dividend, when it will be approved and when it will be paid. Dividend payment also affects share prices.

This page will be updated from time to time.


Date Announced – The date the company announced dividends evidenced by a corporate action published on the website of the NSE.
Qualification date – Shareholders who own shares as at this date will receive dividends. If you buy shares and want to receive dividends make sure it is at least three days before this date. Shares get transferred to you on the basis of the T+3 rule (the date you bought plus 3 working days).
Payment date – This is when the dividend will be paid to you, either via post (dividend warrants) or direct credit to your bank accounts (e-dividend).
Closure of Register – Only shareholders who own shares listed in their register before this date will be paid dividend.

                                                                                                          Nigeria’s leading independent oil and gas company, Seplat Petroleum Development Company has announced that an exchange rate of N410.24/$ will be applicable in the determination of its proposed final dividend of $0.05.

                                                                                                          The company made this known in an announcement published on the Nigerian Stock Exchange “NGX” website, stating that the rates will be applicable to any shareholder that qualifies for and has elected to receive the dividend payment in Naira or GBP.

                                                                                                          Since Seplat is listed on both the Nigerian Exchange Limited and London Stock Exchange, the exchange rates for the naira and the pound sterling amounts payable to shareholders were respectively determined with specific reference to the dollar.

                                                                                                          Exchange rate

Checks at the time of drafting this report revealed that the Naira rate adopted by Seplat for the payment of its final dividend is the official rate for foreign exchange spot operations in the Investors and Exporters FX Window (NAFEX).

                                                                                                          The recent exchange rate disclosed by the oil company speaks volume about the persistent fall in the value of the naira which is down by 6.34% when compared with the N385.78/$ rate the company fixed for the payment of its interim dividend six months ago.

                                                                                                          Since the companies will be paying shareholders from the profit which they made last year, one would think those qualified to earn these dividends are investors who bought some ownership stakes in the company last year or those that bought the shares of the company early in 2021.
