    Seplat pegs exchange rate for its final dividend payment at N410.24/$

    The value of the naira is down by 6.34% when compared with the N385.78/$ rate the company fixed for its interim dividend last year.



    Seplat Petroleum set to sue Access Bank over sealing of its headquarters

    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

    • 1 USD = 410.24 Naira
    • 1 USD = 0.7197 GBP

    What you should know

    The CBN official exchange rate currently stands at N379/$. 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.

    What this means

    The exchange rate proposed by the company seems fair as it holds a fairly robust premium of N31.24/$ when compared with the CBN rate of N379/$.

    However, the Seplat rate is -15.41% or -₦74.76/$ low when compared with the parallel market rate of N485/$1.

    Nigerian stocks you can buy today and still qualify to earn dividends

    The conditions given by a number of companies on NGX provide new investors with the opportunities to benefit from their dividends.



    Attention Stockbrokers: How to use Twitter consumer sentiment to predict the Nigerian Stock Market,Nigerian stocks on Monday, March 15, 2021, closed the trading session with the Bearish note. The All-Share Index (ASI) dropped by 0.22% to settle at 38,561.84 index points almost doubling the loss of Friday last week.

    Listed entities on the Nigerian Stock Exchange “NGX” have taken active steps to make their shareholders happy and this is evident in the juicy dividends which these companies have announced so far in 2021 from the profit which they made through their operations in 2020.

    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.

    These conditions are flexible enough to permit anyone who buys stakes in these companies today the 27th of April, to receive dividends payment as stated in the companies’ initial dividend disclosure.
