No.

I am a bondholder, when is interest paid to me?

Interest is paid twice each year in March and September.

I am a shareholder, when are dividends paid to me?

Dividend payments are expected to be split into an interim dividend paid each April and a final dividend paid in October each year. When Meridian declares a dividend, the actual payment date is then confirmed.

More on dividends

What is meant by an imputed dividend?

Imputation is a mechanism that a company can use to pass on credits for tax it has paid on its profits, to its shareholders when it pays them dividends. These imputation credits offset the amount of tax that the resident shareholders would otherwise be liable to pay on those dividends, so they don't have to pay "double tax".

What currency does Meridian pay dividends in?

We pay dividends in New Zealand dollars to New Zealand resident holders and holders in other countries, except Australian resident holders who are paid in Australian dollars.

What are supplementary dividends and who gets this?

A supplementary dividend is a credit passed on by the payer of an imputed dividend to non-resident investors to offset the effects of double taxation (where the non-resident is subject to both company income tax and non-resident withholding tax).

What are record dates and ex-dividend dates?

A record date is the date on which an Issuer closes its register for the determination of eligible Investors for a dividend or interest payment or any other Corporate Action. Shares purchased after the record date do not participate in the dividend.

An ex-dividend date is the "cut-off" date for a registered shareholder and being eligible to receive the next dividend. From this date, new shareholders will not participate in the next dividend.

The NZX operates on a two day settlement cycle, so a dividend with a record date of 30 September 2016 has an ex-dividend date of 29 September 2016.

When does Meridian report its results?

Our financial year ends on 30 June, with the annual results, an Integrated Report and a shareholder letter released each August.

Each February, we also release interim results and a shareholder letter for the six months to December.

Each month we also release a monthly operating report.
