FAQ

Will Eagers Automotive pay a dividend in 2020?

Eagers Automotive (formerly AP Eagers) has a long history of consistent dividend payments. Its most recent dividend of 11.25 cents per share was paid on 20 April 2020. This was a reduced payment (down from 22.5 cents) due to the economic uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.

The company intends to consider payment of an additional dividend of an equivalent amount later in the year,
once the level of uncertainty caused by current market disruptions has settled.

Does Eagers Automotive offer a DRP?

Yes, Eagers offers a dividend reinvestment plan (DRP) as an alternative to receiving cash dividends on ordinary shares.
