Dividend Bonus 2023
We're pleased to announce we've maintained a dividend bonus this year despite a significantly reduced surplus due to high energy, personnel and distribution costs.
Our overall trading surplus has reduced by 27% on last year, the equivalent of £4.5m. Therefore we need, as highlighted at the Half Year meeting and Half Year Members' Report, to reduce the dividend bonus paid to members.
You can read more about this in our Directors Report and Financial Statements here.
Despite these challenging times, we are pleased to announce we have approved a dividend bonus payment for members' equivalent to 70%, or 70p for every £1 of dividend collected in the year up to 3rd September 2023.
Your dividend bonus will be available to spend from Saturday 2nd December 2023 as full or part payment in any of our stores using your mobile app, dividend card and key fob. We hope you enjoy spending it!
How is this year’s bonus calculated?
Your bonus will be based on how much dividend you have collected throughout the year and how profitable we've been. This year your share of the profits is worth 70p for every £1 of dividend you've collected between 4th September 2022 and 3rd September 2023.
