These interim dividend payments will represent a material increase in the proportion of distributable revenue which the Company has previously paid by way of interim dividends. The objective is to rebalance the proportion of the dividends paid by the Company, as between interim and final dividends, so that shareholders will receive a greater proportion of the Company's dividend distributions earlier, by way of the interim dividends. Although this will obviously result in a lower final dividend, the total level of dividends for the current financial year is not expected to be changed as a result of this reweighting of dividends between interims and final.  The Board remains keen to maintain its record of year on year dividend growth.

 

In relation to the first, second and interim dividends, the latest date for receipt by the registrars, Link Asset Services (formerly Capita Asset Services), of mandate instructions for those shareholders who wish to join the Dividend Reinvestment Plan is 15 December 2017, 2 March 2018 and 1 June 2018, respectively.
