Ex-dividend date – Interim dividend*
If you intend to purchase M&S shares and want them to be eligible for the January dividend payment, you should initiate your purchase before this date. This is because in the UK it takes two days for a share purchase to register after it has been executed by the buyer. Share purchases made on or after this date will not be eligible for the following January dividend payment.
