2014 Interim Dividend

Commonwealth Bank's 2014 interim dividend was paid on 3 April 2014.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia (the Group) announced an interim dividend of $1.83 per share on Wednesday, 12 February 2014. This is an increase of 12 per cent on the 2013 interim dividend. The interim dividend is fully franked and will be payable to owners of ordinary shares on the register at the close of business on 21 February 2014 ("record date"). The ex-dividend date is 17 February 2014. Shares purchased on or after the ex-dividend date do not qualify for the dividend.

The dividend payout ratio (cash basis) of approximately 70 per cent is consistent with the Board's revised dividend policy, announced in August 2012, which increased the payout ratio for the interim dividend.

The Group's Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) will continue to operate, but no discount will be applied to shares issued under the plan for this dividend.
