THE DIVIDEND'S ADJUSTMENT

The payments paid to the Company's shareholders are called dividends. They are quarterly (or once in a half-year; once a year) are announced by the Board of the directors and charged to the shareholders at the appointed day known as the date of record. The dividends' volume can vary due to the some restrictions specified in the Charter of the corporation or in its documents, given to the creditors. The payments of the dividends to the shareholders (transfer of means into the bank accounts, dispatch of checks by mail, etc.) is made in the day called payments date.

To reveal the shareholders applying for the dividends' reception the ex-dividend date is appointed. As the time required for the transfer of the property right under the ordinary share, the stock exchanges appoint the ex-dividend date before the date of record. The investors, who bought the shares before the ex-dividend date, gain the right for the dividends; and the one who has bought them in the ex-dividend date or later, does not receive the rights for the dividends.

Unlike corporate share holders, the CFDs holders do not receive dividends. While the fulfilment of the trading operations under the CFD only the so-called dividend adjustments is taken into account. Updating occurs in a presence of the open positions on the date of shareholder's list fixing ex-dividend date. In case the opened position is for buy, the dividend adjustment is added to the trading account, if the position is for sale the dividend adjustment will be withheld.

For example, Microsoft declares a quarterly dividends payment on December, 8, 2004 in a rate of 0.08 USD on one share. Thus the date of record is appointed on Thursday, February, 17, 2004, and ex-dividend date on Tuesday, February, 15.

If before the American stock exchange opening on February, 15, the Client has an opened position under *MSFT for buy in 1 lot volume (one thousand shares), the following amount: 0.08*1000=80 USD will be added. If the Client has an open position for ssale the amount of 80 USD will be withheld from his trading account.
