Commonwealth Bank of Australia (the Group) announced its results for the half year ended 31 December 2012 on Wednesday, 13 February 2013.
The Group's statutory net profit after tax (NPAT) for the half year ended 31 December 2012 was $3,661 million, which represents a 1 per cent increase on the prior comparative period. Cash NPAT for the current half was $3,780 million - an increase of 6 per cent.
Cash Return on Equity (ROE) for the period was 18.1 per cent.
The Board declared an interim dividend of $1.64 per share - an increase of 20 per cent on the 2011 interim dividend. The dividend payout ratio (cash basis) of approximately 70 per cent is up from 61 per cent for the prior year's interim dividend. This increase is consistent with the Board's revised dividend policy, announced in August 2012, which increased the payout ratio for the interim dividend. Accordingly, the final dividend for the 2013 year is likely to be slightly lower than the final dividend for the 2012 year.
The interim dividend will be fully franked and will be paid on 5 April 2013. The stock will go ex-dividend on 18 February 2013.
