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.

Legend

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.

  1. Yes, this is absolutely a commonly used strategy. Back up the truck whenever the prices of dividend aristocrats are depressed, and reinvest dividends.

  2. Is it true that NSE or whatever body is in charge has lifted ban on payment of dividend by letter till the end of 2019? When is First bank paying dividend?

  3. Please, can someone tell DAAR Communication to explain why it has refused to pay dividends all these years. This should not be a way rich people should continue to defraud the public. Enough of this 419 by DAAR Communication. By

  4. Good evening ONOME. Pls, what is happening to Courtiville Business Solutions Plc. Is it that they have decided not to be paying dividend to their shareholders after making PAT or what? They should pls let us know…. and also let them know that they should start doing that no matter how small it is..

  5. Please Nairametrics, when are we expecting dividend payment from Standard Alliance Insurance plc. I thought they said they used 2018 for shares reconstruction and will definitely pay dividend by 2019.

    • Hi, unfortunately, Onome doesn’t work at Lafarge Africa or have such information kindly wait till the company declare a dividend. Once they do we at Nairametrics (including Onome) will be quick to inform you. Thank you.

  6. Good evening Alfred. Pls why has Courtiville Business Solutions Plc not declared dividend 4 some years now, when and where is their AGM date.

    • Hi there. Alfred isn’t here right now…

      Note that most Nigerian companies typically pay dividends once every year. Some also do pay what they like to call “bonus dividend”.

      Meanwhile, elsewhere, companies can pay dividends to shareholders every quarter. What this means is that you could get paid four times in a year. But then again, this seldom happens in Nigeria.

      Have a good night.

  7. Any information on universal insurance company pls.
    May i know the current registrar and the functioning email address?
