Harvey Norman to pay special dividend after sales jump

June 10 (Reuters) - Australian electronics retailer Harvey Norman Holdings Ltd on Wednesday reported a 17.5% rise in second-half sales to date at its domestic franchisees and said it would pay a special dividend.

Sales benefited as most franchisee stores remained open through the coronavirus pandemic, the company said.

It separately announced a 6 cents-per-share payout for its shareholders later this month. (Reporting by Shashwat Awasthi in Bengaluru; Editing by Tom Hogue)
