The details of NABâs latest dividend
In early May, NAB reported growth across key metrics in itsÂ half-year resultsÂ for the 2022 financial year.
In summary, revenue improved by 4.6% to $9,071 million over the prior corresponding period. The robust performance was underpinned by an increase in lending and deposits, which lifted by 10% and 12% respectively.
This led to the bank achieving a 4.1% boost in cash earnings to $3,480 million.
Management noted that the key driver was the bankâs business banking operations.
The board elected to increase NAB’s interim dividend by 22% to 73 cents per share.
The dividend is fullyÂ frankedÂ which means those who receive it will get some form of tax credits.
Based on yesterday’s closing price, NAB has a dividend yield of 5.09%. That sits in the mid-range of the big four.
