Hey thanks, XXXXX XXXXX wondering if you could clarify a few things for me. How did you calculate 1)ordinary shares 2) dividends per share 3) cost of shares? will give top rating if you explain well .thank you

Expert:  F. Naz replied 2 years ago.
total amount of capital is 12.5 million and the per share par value is 25 pence, therefore divided 12.5/0.25 = 50 million sahres.

The net income calculated is 7.7338 million, as the company distributes all earnings therefore the dividend is equal to 7.7338/50 = 0.15468 or around 15 pence.

Then divide dividend by ex dividend price which is 86-6 = 80 pence or 0.8, therefore the cost of sahres is .15468/.80 = .1933 or 19.33%
