Q: How do you calculate the dividend amount and reinvestment units?

A: The AMCs declare an amount from time to time as dividend. Dividend option has 2 sub plans:

1) Dividend Payout
In this option, the fund house distributes the amount of dividend declared to the investors.

2) Dividend Reinvestment
In this option, the dividend amount gets reinvested in the scheme at the ex-dividend NAV.

Mutual fund dividends are always calculated on face value of the scheme.

For eg:
Dividend Payout:
Units: 200
NAV: 28.85
Dividend: 20%
The investor will receive 20% of Rs 10 (face value) on 200 units = Rs 2/unit = Rs 400 as dividend. Then the day end NAV will become 26.85 {i.e. 28.85 - 2}.

Dividend Reinvestment: Rs 400 will be reinvested on ex dividend NAV (400/26.85 = 14.8977).
Investor will receive 14.8977 units as dividend payout.
