Warrant underlying dividends
The table below lists recently announced dividends for securities which have warrants issued over them.
Recently announced dividends (announced within the last business day) will appear in the "new today" table.
Details for "previously announced" dividends are displayed until the relevant payment date.
Dividend amount: The dividend shown as cents per security. Where the company is a foreign company that has announced its dividend in a foreign currency, the amount in this field is in Australian dollars, converted as at the ex dividend date. Therefore actual amounts received may vary from this figure based on exchange rate movements.
Ex dividend date: Equity securities are quoted 'ex dividend' at the start of trading on the fourth business day before the company's Record Date. To be entitled to a dividend a shareholder must have purchased shares before the ex dividend date.
Record Date: The Record Date is the date on which the company closes its register to determine which shareholders are registered to receive the dividend.
Date payable: The date on which the company pays the dividend to those shareholders who were registered by the Record Date. Note that the corresponding payment date for instalment warrant distributions will be at least five business days after the payment date of the underlying company dividend.
% franked: A franked dividend is a dividend paid by a company out of profits on which the company has already paid tax. The shareholder is entitled to an imputation credit, or reduction in the amount of income tax that must be paid, up to the amount of tax already paid by the company. The % figure represents the % of tax already paid by the company. Sometimes the percentage franked is also referred to in company announcements as a franked amount or imputed credit.
Type: All dividends are classified by ASX as either interim or final. The last dividend in the company's financial year is classified as final and all others are classified as interim. Some dividends may also be classified as "special" in accordance with the advice given by the company about the dividend. Ordinarily the term "special" is used to indicate that the dividend is not one that is paid regularly each year but the term may be used differently by different companies.
