Dividend Types

  1. 1. DIVIDENDS AND ITS TYPES V.Gayathri
  2. 2. DIVIDENDS AND ITS TYPES • Dividend is a portion of the company's earnings to be distributed to its shareholders, based on board of directors' decision. • Dividends are quoted as Dividend Per Share (DPS) or dividend yield. • Most companies having stable and secure growth offer dividends when their share prices become stagnant. • However several companies do not offer dividends as all profits are reinvested to ensure faster, better-than- average growth.
  3. 3. Continued.. • The board of directors decides the percentage of the profit to be distributed as dividends. • Dividends are issued quarterly or annually. • Dividends are declared by the board of directors each time they are paid. • There are three important Dividend Related dates. • Declaration date, date of record and payment date.
  4. 4. CASH DIVIDEND • The Cash dividend is by far the most common of the dividend types used. • On the date of declaration, the board of directors resolves to pay a certain dividend amount in cash. • It is paid to those investors holding the company's stock on a specific date.
  5. 5. CASH DIVIDEND • The date of record is the date on which dividends are assigned to the holders of the company's stock. • On the date of payment, the company issues dividend payments.
  6. 6. STOCK DIVIDEND • A Stock dividend is the issuance by a company of its common stock. • It is issued to its common shareholders without any consideration. • If the company issues less than 25 percent of the total number of previously outstanding shares, you treat the transaction as a stock dividend. • If the transaction is for a greater proportion of the previously outstanding shares, then treat the transaction as a "stock split"
  7. 7. STOCK DIVIDEND • To record a stock dividend, transfer from retained earnings to the capital stock • And additional paid-in capital accounts an amount equal to the fair value of the additional shares issued. • The fair value of the additional shares issued is based on their fair market value when the dividend is declared.
  8. 8. PROPERTY DIVIDEND • A company may issue a non-monetary dividend to investors, rather than making a cash or stock payment. • You record this distribution at the fair market value of the assets distributed. • Since the fair market value is likely to vary somewhat from the book value of the assets, the company will likely record the variance as a gain or loss.
  9. 9. SCRIP DIVIDEND • A company may not have sufficient funds to issue dividends in the near future. • So, instead it issues a scrip dividend, which is essentially a promissory note (which may or may not include interest. • It is paid to the shareholders at a later date. This dividend creates a note payable.
  10. 10. LIQUIDATING DIVIDEND • When the board of directors wishes to return the capital originally contributed by shareholders as a dividend, it is called a liquidating dividend. • And it may be a precursor to shutting down the business.   • The accounting for a liquidating dividend is similar to the entries for a cash dividend. • Except that the funds are considered to come from the additional paid-in capital account.
