Information about your dividends

Our policy

We will target a dividend pay-out ratio of 40% to 60% of post-tax operating profits.  We expect to pay an interim and a final dividend each financial year.

It is expected that the final and interim dividends will be paid in the approximate proportions of two-thirds (final dividend) and one-third (interim dividend), of the total dividends payable in respect of a financial year, taking into account the underlying cash generation, cash resources, capital position, distributable reserves and market conditions at the time.

All key dividend dates such as ex-dividend date, record date and payment date will be published on our website as soon as they are announced.
