Tesco Dividend


Recommended Posts

There is probably a straightforward answer to this, but why has the Tesco Special Dividend been converted (at the $/£ FX rate) when the dividend and my account are in Sterling?

The conversion is to account for the reverse stock split. However, it is still innacurate. Tesco’s reverse split was 19 for 15 -- 15/19 = 0.78947368. 19 x 0.71391184 = 13.56, in other words 19 shares received money for 13.56 not 15. I would really like to know the answer to that. Say you have 115 shares, you now probably have 90.7 shares, that multiplied by 0.5093 (£50.93 a share). You should've received £46.19 dividend and you probably received £41.81, instead.

Same here. I was Expecting the dividend in full yet it seems that IG have helped themselves to 29% of our money. Moving my account is starting to look appealing.

I have been paid dividend based on the amount of new shares. Surely this is incorrect, I thought that dividend was supposed to be based on the amount of shares pre-consolidation? 

And even then, the figures are around £200 off. (Assuming due to conversion rate others have mentioned above)

I had the same thing.

This is clearly wrong and needs correcting asap as the special div was due to be paid on 26 Feb and is already late.

Also, I've had an ongoing question with the IG Corporate action team since I received the the original email on 12 Feb 21. The email stated as follows:-

How will it work?

 Let’s say you have 190 shares priced at £2.50 per share. We’ll close your original position and open a new one to reflect the 15-for-19 consolidation. This means that you’ll now have 150 shares, and the share price will have adjusted to £3.16 per share. The total monetary value of your position remains the same.

This is also clearly wrong. The share price was not and was never going to be adjusted under the terms of the consolidation, with the change of position value being made up by the special dividend.

All I required was for the IG CA team to confirm that the wording of the email above was incorrect. So far it has take over 2 weeks to get the most vague response. that has not addressed my specific point.

@Qwerty123 @Stu73

For me the amount of shares that the dividend is paid for is the pre consolidated amount, so that at least is correct.

@CharlotteIG what is going on with this dividend?

Hey all, 

Tesco special dividend is actually in GBP , but unfortunately there was an error that payed it in USD instead of GBP.. This is now resolved, we have reversed all USD payment and paid it in GBP again but sorry for the inconvenience and any confusion caused. 
All the best

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
