This means ‘without dividend’. Before we announce a dividend, we consult with the dividend procedure timetable issued by the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange and set the ex-dividend date. If you buy shares before the ex-dividend date, you are entitled to the most recently-announced dividend; if you buy after that date, the dividend goes to the previous owner of the shares.
What does 'record date' mean?
The dividend is based on the number of shares held by each shareholder and is paid to the shareholders on the share register at a specific date known as the record date. This is normally two days after the ex-dividend date. If you receive a dividend and are not sure if you are entitled to it, contact the agent who sold your shares for you for further advice.
