Dividends are paid to shareholders on the Register of Members on the record date for the dividend. An interim dividend is normally declared by the Board of Directors in August of each year and is generally paid in October/November. A final dividend is normally recommended by the Board of Directors following the end of the fiscal year to which it relates and, if approved by the shareholders at an AGM, is generally paid in April/May of that year.

The payment of future cash dividends will be dependent upon future earnings, the financial condition of the Group and other factors.
