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 Stock Exchange.
Dividend during the year – This represents all the dividend announcements made by a company in a given year.
Total dividends – This is the summation of a company’s interim dividend (often announced in a prior year) and the final dividend announced following the publishing of a full-year annual report (after being announced in the first quarter of the year).

Qualification date – Shareholders who own shares as of 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 dividends.

Otedola again! Deceiving foolish investors with mouth watering dividends,price manipulations and only to dump the business after milking it to it’s knees. Where is Fort Oil,Xenon? Just imagine investors wealth going down the drain in 5 year time!
Please tel me more, are you saying the dividend offer is only for price speculation ?
Just to entice people.
It’s deplorable. Meanwhile, there are people earning salaries masquerading as regulators whose impact is of no moment. Time and again, unsuspecting investors end up getting swindled.
I observe that some of these public companies change their Registrars and without the knowledge of many of these lower investor Shareholders, thereby increasing the volume of unclaimed dividends. The new Registrars will not scrutinise properly the profiles/ details of shareholders transferred to them for due dividends to be paid to them through their usual bank accounts. So dividends are in most cases paid to only the ‘lucky’ ones at random.
What is the situation with MTN OFFER of December 2021? There has not been any feedback till now.
MTN offer of 2021 was well concluded to the extent that those who subscribed to it got the final dividend for FY 2021 as well as 2022 interim dividend. Payment of #10 final dividend for FY 2022 is April 20, 2022. Additionally, the 1:20 bonus promised those that did not sell their shares purchased via the offer will also be redeemed.
Thanks for your feedback but for me I have not gotten any evidence of purchase of shares such as share certificate and no dividend of course. Several times I took this complaint to point of purchase (First Bank) all I got was that some staff were affected. Please assist me to normalize this transaction.
