BACKGROUND

Electronic Dividend Payment or eDividend refers to the payment of cash dividends by a listed issuer to its shareholders by directly crediting the shareholders’ cash dividend entitlements into their respective bank accounts.

In tabling the Federal Budget 2010, the Prime Minister announced that all listed issuers are required to offer eDividend services to their shareholders. The Securities Commission’s subsequent press release stated that shareholders are given a one-year grace period to provide their bank account information to Bursa Malaysia Depository Sdn Bhd ("Bursa Depository”) (as the repository of such information) and that eDividend will be implemented in the third quarter of 2010.

The main objectives of implementing eDividend are, amongst others, to promote greater efficiency of the dividend payment system and to put the Malaysian market on par with practices in other regional markets in relation to receipt of dividend proceeds by shareholders.

At the same time, the move towards eDividend is a further step towards the national agenda of migrating to electronic payments as well as adherence to G-30’s recommendation on best practices of a paperless environment and zero-intervention process.

IMPLEMENTATION OF EDIVIDEND

The eDividend framework will be implemented in two phases as described below:

FIRST PHASE

The first phase involves the collation of bank account information from shareholders where shareholders will be able to start providing their bank account information to Bursa Depository (through their authorised depository agents/brokers) from 19 April 2010.

SECOND PHASE

In the second phase, Bursa Depository will be able to provide bank account information together with the Record of Depositors to those listed issuers who need the bank account information for eDividend. As such, by 1 September 2010, listed issuers may request for the bank account information together with the Record of Depositors from Bursa Depository.

BENEFITS OF
EDIVIDEND

SPEED

  • Faster access to your cash dividends which would be credited directly into your bank account
