It’s good news for shareholders, with Dicker Data announcing a nine cents dividend for each share owned.

“The recent Exeed acquisition further demonstrates the commitment to take on new opportunities, deliver results for our people, investors, resellers and uphold our value proposition.”

Dicker was up 0.19 per cent, trading at $15.77 per share at 3:13 pm AEST.
