In August the Company declared a 2.0 cents fully franked final dividend. This brought the 2019 fully franked full year dividend up to 5.0 cents per share equating to a 6.7% annual fully franked yield, or a 9.5% gross yield based on the CDM share price on the announcement date. The Ex-Date for the dividend is the 18th October 2019 and the payment date for the dividend is the 30th October 2019. The dividend reinvestment plan (DRP) was not in operation for this final dividend as the Company’s shares were trading at a large discount to the underlying NTA per share of the Company.
At 30th September 2019, the Company was 67.4% invested.
