Symbol group Nisa-Today’s is to deliver £5m back in dividends to the group’s members following record sales of £1.5bn for the year.

The dividend payment equates to £8 per share and rewards members for their shareholding as well as encouraging members to take the maximum shareholding, which is 100 shares.

Nisa-Today chief executive Neil Turton said: “We’ve had another fantastic year, reaching a number of milestones for the business, none of which would have been possible without the support of our members. The payment of surplus and dividends, we hope, demonstrates our appreciation of that support and our on-going commitment to creating benefits for our members.”

He added: “The fact we operate on a low profit margin which is passed back to our membership, demonstrates our unique focus on creating benefits to members rather than to the central business or profits for external shareholders.”
