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 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.

  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

What's your say?
