Ex-date is used to identify who is eligible for the upcoming dividend (just before record date). Pay date is when the dividend is actually paid out to eligible shareholders.
The ex-date is one business day before the record date. Record date is the day on which a company identifies shareholders eligible for a dividend payout.

Usually there is a sharp dip (normally in the same amoujnt of the dividend to be paid out) but then it recovers over time.
The person holding the stock before the ex-date will be eligible on record date and receive the dividend.
