HCMC – The Vietnam Commercial Joint Stock Export Import Bank (Eximbank), whose EIB shares are traded on the southern exchange, said that it will pay a cash dividend for 2023 at 3%.

For the first time in 10 years, Eximbank has announced plans to pay a cash dividend. The last cash dividend payment (at 4%) by the bank took place in 2014.

As per the plan, Eximbank will pay VND300 per share, sourced from the undistributed profits until 2023. With over 1.74 billion outstanding shares, the lender will allocate VND522 billion for dividend payment.

Eximbank has also announced its plan to issue over 121.86 million shares to pay a share dividend of 7% for 2023, which means shareholders will receive seven more shares for every 100 shares held.

On the southern exchange, EIB rose by 1.27% day-on-day to VND19,950 per share at the close of the trading session today, May 31. It took the lead by liquidity in the market with more than 20 million shares transacted.
