2021 half year dividend
On 12 August, the AMP Board declared not to issue a dividend for the first half of 2021, which would normally be paid in September. While our surplus capital remains strong, AMP will continue with a conservative approach to capital management to support our business transformation, including the proposed demerger which is planned to be completed by June 2022.
Small shareholding Sale Facility
AMP has one of the largest retail shareholder bases in Australia and New Zealand. For many shareholders AMP may be the only shares they own. To assist shareholders sell small parcels of shares (less than A$500 in value), AMP plans to establish a Small shareholding Sale Facility in September 2021. Eligible shareholders will receive personalised correspondence by email or post from mid to late September 2021.
2020 reporting year dividends
Full year 2020 dividend - The AMP Board did not declare a dividend for the 2020 full year payment. This dividend would have been paid in March 2021. The decision was made to maintain our balance sheet strength and conservative capital management. The board is committed to restarting the group’s capital management initiatives including the payment of dividends, share buyback and other capital initiatives in 2021. This is subject to the completion of the portfolio review, market conditions and business performance.
Half year 2020 special dividend - On 1 October 2020 AMP paid a A$0.10 a share fully franked dividend. The special dividend was the return of capital following the sale of the AMP Life business in June 2020. The special dividend was a cash payment only and the dividend reinvestment plan (DRP) did not operate for this payment.
2019 reporting year dividends
The AMP Board did not declare a dividend for the 2019 reporting year. These dividends would have been paid in September 2019 and March 2020. The decision was made in order for AMP to maintain its balance sheet strength and conservative capital management through a period of significant change including the sale of the AMP Life business. This position will be reviewed after completion of the sale of AMP Life, which is expected by 30 June 2020. As no dividends have been paid for the 2019/2020 tax year, there is no income from AMP shares to declare in tax returns for this reporting year.
