Latest Dividend

Spark pays dividends on a semi-annual basis. A 100% imputed ordinary dividend of 12.5 cents per share was declared for H2 FY20.

For FY21, subject to no material adverse changes in operating outlook, Spark anticipates paying an annual total dividend of 23-25 cents per share 100% imputed. 

The dividend reinvestment plan has been reinstated for the H2 FY20 dividend after being suspended in 2015. Shares issued under the dividend reinvestment plan will be issued at a 2% discount to the prevailing market price around the time of issue. The last date for shareholders to elect to participate in the dividend reinvestment plan for the H2 FY20 dividend is 21 September 2020.

If shareholders previously participated in the dividend reinvestment plan they will need to re-elect to participate. Previous elections have not been retained.

Spark’s Dividend Reinvestment Plan Offer Document and Participation Notice can be found on the Dividend Reinvestment Plan page of this website.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan

A Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) operates for Spark New Zealand shares.

The Dividend Reinvestment Plan lets shareholders conveniently increase their investment in Spark New Zealand without incurring brokerage fees.

Participation in the Plan is entirely optional. If you wish to increase your investment in Spark New Zealand, you can enrol in the Plan and Spark New Zealand will reinvest your dividends in additional Shares and pay for them with the net proceeds of your cash dividends.

If dividends are an important income source, you can do nothing and you will continue to receive all future dividends as cash without reinvesting the net proceeds or you can choose to receive a mix of both cash dividends and Shares.

Please find below Spark’s Dividend Reinvestment Plan Offer Document and Participation Notice.

Please read the booklet thoroughly and consult your own financial adviser if you have any questions.
