Notes:

  • Care should be taken interpreting this chart as all dividend payments for final year may not have been paid.
  • The financial year that the dividend is allocated depends on the payment date of the dividend, not the ex-dividend date.
  • Dividend history has not been adjusted for any capital reconstructions which may have effected dividend entitlement per share.
