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. Thanks May God continue to keep and empower you and other organizations that add value to life like you are doing .

  2. I’m a shareholder in the former ASHAKA CEMENT that has been delisted from the Nigerian Stock Market. Till date, I don’t know the situation about my holdings. Please, can someone tell me what I need to know about former ASHAKA CEMENT shareholders? Thanks upfront.

  3. Thanks for your insight analysis.

    please which stock is /are advisable to buy now and resell before end of 2018?

  4. Some companies like Equity assurance , Japaul etc play on the intelligence of investors by keeping their shares away from them .
    The SEC can assist investing share holders by sanctioning the erring companies .
    There are occasions when they publicly lavish investors hard earned money on frivolities of valueless personal cores .
    It’s better not to be listed than be listed to cheat investors . What they do are quite open to the public

  5. I bought some first bank shares about 2003, due to change of location I haven’t received any divident since.
    How do I go about it.
    I went to the bank today to fill the e-divident form but was told that was for going forward.
    How can I get my unclaimed dividents.
    Thanks?

  6. Please the authority should check what is going on with Diamond Bank since 7-8years I bought their shares l have not received ten kobo as devedend but when you visit any of their branches you see customers full everywhere yet the manegment are not giving us anything as per devedend at the end of the year

  7. Are their media provided to report registrars who refused to pay divided to shareholders even after they have mandated their shares and confirmed accounts in respective banks

  8. Thanks for your insight analysis.

    please which stocks is /are advisable to buy now and resell before end of 2018?

  9. What is the different between closure of register date and date of qualification? Because I bought shares after qualification date but with the closure of register and I don’t know if I will get dividend.

    • Since you purchased your shares during closure dates, you won’t get dividend. The difference between closure date and qualification date is that, only the names that appears in the register of the registrar as at the end of business day on the qualification date will receive dividend, where as the closure date is a period when the registrar will not alter it’s books.

  10. Please i need clarification of when someone is qualified for dividend. Qualification date of Caverton share is 25 April 2018. If i sell my holdings on 23 April 2018 , will i be qualified for dividend. On the other hand, If i buy new shares on 23 April 2018 and the qualification date is 25 April, 2018, will the new shares be qualified for dividend.

    • Thank you. Your response is helpful. But I need clarification on whether or not you still need to go and register again for E-dividend after you have like 10 companies already paying you e-dividend to your bank. Because my name still appears under unregistered shareholders for e-dividend under one company, meanwhile I have been receiving direct dividend for many companies through my bank since last year.

  13. Pls kindly help, my edividend mandate form for ETI has been approved but GTL-Registrars said they can’t pay me in naira so my account can’t be credited. Advise me on what to do
    Thanks

    • To gain admission to an AGM, all you need is a verifiable form of ID. You will be given an admission tag once your name is confirmed on the shareholders registrar.

  14. Please may I know the reasons the listed stocks below are not tradable on the floor of the NSE. Since 8-years now, I gave mandate to my Stockbroker to sell them-off. Till date, they’re still dormant with no buyers. They are as follows:
    (1) Universal Insurance Company Plc
    (2) SCOA Nigeria Plc
    (3) Royal Exchange Assurance
    (4) AG Leventis Nigeria Plc.

    In the light of the above conundrum, could you please educate me how I could possibly sell them off, or what information (if any) you have about them. Are they delisted by CSCS?

    • SCOA, Royal Exchange, Universal insurance and AG Leventis are still trading on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, though volumes are typically low. You could ask your stockbroker to arrange an OTC sale if you are willing to to sell below the current market price. You can also divide your sale order into smaller portions.

  15. To attend an AGM meeting, what do I need to go with? And how would I know the venue? Where is the Venue for FCMB AGM Meeting?

    • To gain admission to an AGM, all you need is a verifiable form of ID. You will be given an admission tag once your name is confirmed on the shareholders registrar. FCMB AGM will be held at Shell Hall MUSON Centre, Onikan Lagos.

  16. Please can I forward my completed E-dividend form to the registrar through post office or is it not advisable

  17. I still want to use this opportunity to say kudos to nairametrics. You guys are really doing good work. My knowledge of stock investment have tremendously transformed for good

  18. Good morning, Please I want clarification on my shares. I bought Transcop shares since 2007 and up till now I have not received any dividend on same. I want to know the procedure and what I need to do. Thank you.

  19. All I can just say is that Naira Metrics management is wonderful , Caring and will always be richly blessed n’y God.
    Thank you so much.

  20. What is the dividend payment date for lasaco. Please is this company still listed on Nigeria stock exchange

  21. Please, what has gone wrong with the Union bank PLC? For years now, they have not paid any dividends.

    Nigeria Breweries PLC paid their dividends on April 23. I have filled my e-dividend form with my GTbank. Up til now, I have not received any alert. What has happened?

  22. And again, a dividend of #3.13 was listed for Nigeria Breweries PLC but at the AGM, a dividend of #4.13 was announced. Which is correct?

  23. How can I trade stock on line buy myself. I heard it is possible now. Or where can I get the training

  24. On April 30, I asked two questions. I have not been attended to and those who asked questions on May 1, have been answered. Does it mean that my questions have no answer. I thought it ought to first come, first serve.

  25. When last did Diamond bank declared dividend. Is there any hope of them paying dividend?

  26. Good morning to the entire crew of Nairametrics.com Indeed you are doing a great job. Please why did Lasaco have to remove their dividend information from NSE site? Was it not approved?
    Thanks

  27. Please update me with the dividends payment status of oando,skye bank, and first bank. Are they going to pay at all for the current year?

  28. Please update me with the dividends payment status of oando,skye bank, and first bank. Are they going to pay at all for the current year?

  29. Only first bank is going to pay 25kobo this year. The rest companies did not declared any dividends this year. L

  30. @KJ All delisted shares were paid N2 per share. The shares were also exchanged for LAFARGE AFRICA PLC share @ 202 ASHAKA SHARES for 57 LAFARGE SHARES. They have since paid a dividend of N1.50k per share for those with LAFARG.E AFRICA PLC shares for 2018.

    You can get in touch with the Registrars of LAFARGE AFRICA PLC (CARDINAL STONE REGISTRARS) for more details and what to do about your case. Good luck.

  31. If a compañy did not declare dividend does that means there will b no AGM meeting from such Company?

  32. No, it is mandatory for all companies to hold AGM of the shareholders once in a year whether or not the companies declare dividends .

  33. Your work is excellent for its education and information regarding stock trading. pis extend this to money market (TB,BOND ETC)

  34. Pls I need your help my father told me bought shares with lasco insurance has not gotten any dividend instead he is being told to pay his broker 120k every month which he refused to cause that wasn’t their previous agreement ,
    First thing I wish to know is:
    Does lasco company exist ?
    2 if yes what is your advice to my father ?
    Thanks I will be glad to here your reply sir

  35. Good morning. Please update me with the dividend payment status of Lasaco Insurance. Is it still listed on the stock exchange? Nairametrics you guys are doing a great job. But why the silence on Lasaco. So many questions and no answers. Thanks

  36. You stopped updating Dividends Announced from 17/05/18, are you tired of it or overwhelmed by diminishing returns?
    Please wake up and start from where you dropped. Thanks

    • Hi Godwin,

      The last one updated was May 16th 2018 and there is no new one on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) website.

  37. Attention: Onome Ohwovoriole
    Union Bank PLC held its AGM on May 5, 2018. Did they declare any dividend or it was just business as usual of no dividends?

  38. Please I have done bankers confirmation over three times as demanded by cardinal stone registrars who their attendant costs. I even down loaded e-dividend mandate form and submitted to my bank, first bank. I again downloaded another, took to bank to sign and stamp, then scanned it along side national ID, utility bill, cscs processed form,etc and emailed to cardinal stone registrars, but till date I can’t receive my lafarge and fcmb dividends that have been said to be paid to shareholders. Why do regulatory authorities not look into such fraudulent acts of some registrars? Why can’t investors get their dividends? Agada Moses Egbodor from Calabar.

  39. Good day,
    I have issue with GTL Registrar, I have done my e dividend. NIBBS sent a text to me that it has been done, but up till now, GTL refused to pay my Glaxosmith dividend.for 2017(N7.50 per share) When i called them, they explained that the transaction failed.I have been on this issue for six(6) weeks, but since then they did ignore my calls and did not reply my mails.Nairametrics, please which regulatory body can i report to. It seems it was an intentional act by some of the registrar, to delay payment of dividend,What they do is that they trade with the unclaimed dividends. All these registrars should be sanctioned for these fraudulent acts.

    Please which regulatory can i report to?

  40. Please don’t accuse registrars, they will not eat your money. The problem could be your from your account details. Just visit SEC office and explain to them and they will help you

  41. How may investors get even initial money invested in starcomms plc, now that starcomms plc is delisted in Nigeria stock exchange.are the authorities not doing anything about it.
