As the audited accounts begin to arrive, the companies will propose dividend payments to their shareholders, as recommended by their respective boards.
It is also important to follow these announcements to find out who is eligible to receive the dividend, when it will be approved and when it will be paid. The payment of dividends also affects the stock price.
This page will be updated from time to time.
