Dividend Information

Currency

Dividends are declared in US Dollars but the default currency for the dividend will depend on whether the shareholder has a Nigerian Certificate for Capital Importation ("CCI") and is determined as follows:

  • Shareholders holding their shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and do not hold a valid CCI will be paid their dividend in Naira;
  • Shareholders holding their shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange with a valid CCI will be paid their dividend in US dollars as the default currency. However, those shareholders may instead elect to receive their entire dividend payment in Naira (partial elections are not permissible); and
  • Shareholders holding their shares through depository interests on the London Stock Exchange will be paid their dividend in US dollars as the default currency. However, those shareholders may instead elect to receive their entire dividend payment in pounds sterling.  Partial elections are not permissible.
