Many companies listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange have announced dividend payout for the 2020 financial year, showing the resilience of most of the firms in breaking through the chaos in the year of the pandemic.
Some of them even bucked the trend by reporting larger revenues and profits at a time when global businesses took a hit from lockdowns and stay-at-home orders that eroded sales and ate away at income.
A company like Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc not only shocked the market in announcing its biggest dividend payout ever on Wednesday, but simultaneously stated its bonus plan to reward shareholders with a new ordinary share for every six already held.
The announcement helped drive a surge in market activities on Thursday, with the All Share Index gaining 0.53 per cent.
Below is a list of all companies that have so far announced returns for their shareholders.
