£617.47 dividend. Not bad for owning a share in A4e Ltd of 5p

with 2 comments

A4e Ltd shareholders benefit from one of the best financial return on investment in the entire UK!

From their latest accounts…

Dividend Date Share value Type Return
£617.47 1st April 2010 5p (5 pence) Ordinary B (redeemable) 1234840%
£45.45 1st April 2010 5p (5 pence)  Ordinary D (redeemable)* (90800%)
£36.36 1st April 2010 5p (5 pence)  Ordinary E (redeemable) 72620%
£35.80 1st April 2010 5p (5 pence)  Ordinary D (redeemable)* (71500%)
£4.44 1st April 2010 5p (5 pence) Ordinary (equity share) 8780%
£81.25 1st April 2010 5p (5 pence) Ordinary D (redeemable)
*double payments?
162400%

The “return” is only a simple calculation of difference between share value and dividend. Doesn’t take into consideration previous dividends, taxation and length of ownership. Should the % figures be correct (was done with an online tool, I personally have no idea how to work it out) the top dividend of £617.47 has a return percentage of over a million percent.

This would be much higher if we considered previous dividend payments. The bottom row of the table considers the double payments for that share class into one.

A4e Dividends

Why would a business pay out so much more in redeemable shares than equity shares?

Why does A4e even need shareholders for investment (non-ownership) purposes?

Does A4e pay out such dividends to avoid paying so much to key staff by Income Tax and NI?

How can A4e Emma “cuts are fantastic” Harrison CBE justify such dividends, some giving as much return exceeding a million percent, with its well established poor performance?

Considering fraud is systemic within A4e, is this annual dash for the cash money laundering illegal monies?
