2017 First Interim Dividend


The Board has declared an interim dividend covering the period 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2017.


Distribution period:

1 January 2017 - 30 June 2017

Distribution amount per share:

3.48 pence

Ex-dividend date:

21 September 2017

Dividend record date:

22 September 2017

Last date to elect/revoke elections:

16 October 2017

Payment date/Allotment of scrip:

31 October 2017

Scrip Alternative in operation:




The Directors intend that the Company will generally restrict distributions (by way of dividend or otherwise) to the level of distributable cash flows, and dividends to the level of income from the Fund's investments, as recognised in the relevant financial period. Any such dividend or distribution shall be made conditional on the passing of the solvency test under Guernsey law.


Distributions on the shares are expected to be paid twice a year, normally in respect of the six month period to 30 June and 31 December respectively, and are expected to be made by way of interim dividends.


The Board intends to offer a scrip dividend alternative for this distribution to those investors who wish to receive additional JLIF securities in lieu of a cash payment. A circular will be sent to shareholders explaining the terms of the scrip dividend alternative. It is intended that the circular together with scrip dividend election forms will be mailed on or about 30 September 2017 to all eligible JLIF shareholders on the register as at the record date for the dividend, being 22 September 2017. The scrip dividend election forms will need to be completed and returned to Capita Registrars Limited by 16 October 2017 by those investors who wish to receive shares in lieu of cash other than those shareholders who have previously given a Scrip Dividend Mandate to the Company.


Note: The times and dates in this announcement are expected times and dates only and are subject to change.  Any such changes will be notified to shareholders through a regulatory information service.
