Despite recording a slump in most of its key financial metrics for the half year period ended June 30, 2021, Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc has declared an improved interim dividend of N1.00 per ordinary share of 50 kobo each.
The proposed interim dividend indicates a gain of about 150% when compared to the amount declared in the corresponding period of last year (HY 2020: 40 kobo). It is pertinent to note that the declared dividend will be paid on each of the outstanding 12,956,997,163 ordinary shares of the bank, amounting to N12.96 billion.
The banking giant in a recent notice filed with the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX), revealed that the dividend which is subject to deduction of appropriate withholding tax and regulatory approval, will be paid to shareholders whose names appear in the Register of Members as at the close of business on Monday, September 20, 2021.
