  1. How do you calculate installments from resultant purchases?

    We use a divisor of 5 on the resultant balance after purchases at the close of each trading month. If the resultant installment after dividing your closing balance by five is greater than your previous installment then the installment will change upwards. But if the resultant installment is less or equal to the previous installment then the installment will not change. Your installment will only change if you buy when your current balance is less than or equal to the last installment. E.G.

    •     Balance = $60
    •     Previous installment = $65
    •     New Purchase = $125
    •     New installment due next month = $125/5 = $25

    This has been made simple as we do not load interest on our credit. This formula is easy and flexible for you the customer as you can easily relate your purchases and divide the resultant balance and come up with your next installment due. If we where to go the route you suggested it will be very confusing to many customers as we run a revolving credit account where one can buy as many times as long as there is credit available on the account. Imagine if you buy in three consecutive months. Your installment will definitely be high and only to reduce as you pay in the subsequent months. Budgeting will become a problem.

  1. What is a dividend?

    A dividend is a taxable sum of money declared by a company's board of directors and given to its shareholders out of the company's current or retained earnings. Dividends are usually given as cash (cash dividend), but they can also take the form of stock (scrip dividend) or other property. There is no guarantee that a company will make dividend payments in any given year or years.

  2. Can I take my dividend in shares?

    It depends on the type of the dividend declared. If it’s a purely cash dividend, you do not have an option to take up shares instead. However, if a cash dividend with a scrip option is declared, you can opt to receive more shares in the company. If you are paid your dividend in cash, you can ask you broker to reinvest the proceeds into Edgars shares on your behalf.

    Yes, this is possible. You need to contact our registrars and provide them with your banking details as well as the instruction to directly deposit your future dividends into your account. They will assist you.
