At the Company’s Annual General Meeting held in May 2021, shareholders renewed the implementation of a Scrip Dividend Scheme (“Scrip Scheme”). The Scrip Scheme provides shareholders with the opportunity to receive dividends as new ordinary shares instead of cash. This enables us to retain more cash for reinvestment into our business, which would otherwise be paid as cash dividends.
The Mandate Form and the Guide to the Scrip Scheme, accessible through the links below, provide information on the Scrip Scheme and how to participate.
2023 Interim Dividend
The Company announced its half year results for the six months to 30 June 2023 on 24 July 2023 and declared an interim dividend of 11.8 pence per share (the “2023 Interim Dividend“), which will be fully paid as a Property Income Distribution (“PID“).
The 2023 Interim Dividend will be paid in either cash or new ordinary shares under the Scrip Scheme on 27 October 2023 to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 15 September 2023. The timetable in relation to the 2023 Interim Dividend is shown below:
