China Galaxy Securities (6881) cuts final dividend after going ex
Company announcement, 7-Aug-2015
More than 3 months after completing a share placement on 5-May-2015, and after going ex-dividend on 2-Jul-2015, CGS now says that the dividend will be cut by 21% from CNY 0.16 to CNY 0.126447 per share (pre-tax) in order to divide the same amount of profit over a larger share base. This is wrong-headed. Investors who sold on or after the ex-date but before this announcement will be worse off because of it. They also persist with the inane mainland habit of declaring dividends "per 10 shares" rather than per share.
