Dividend information

Dividend Guidance

The Board expects to update the dividend policy once the Commission finalises the value of our regulated asset base and regulated revenue for fibre, currently due in June 2021. Until then, the Board expects to be able to provide shareholders with modest dividend growth, subject to no material adverse changes in circumstance or outlook.

FY20 dividend guidance

For FY20, we expect to pay a dividend of 24 cents per share, subject to no material adverse changes in circumstances or outlook.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan

A Dividend Reinvestment Plan is available for shareholders wishing to reinvest all or part of their future dividends in additional Chorus shares.
