Declaration of dividends


The Board of Civitas Social Housing PLC ("Board"), the first London listed Real Estate Investment Trust ("REIT") dedicated to investing into regulated social housing in England and Wales, is pleased to announce dividends for the period from 1 October 2018 to 21 December 2018.



The Board has declared dividends in respect of the Ordinary shares and C shares for the period from 1 October 2018 to 21 December 2018 of 1.11 pence per Ordinary share and 0.67 pence per C share.  The dividends will be paid on or around 11 January 2019 to holders on the respective registers as at 7 December 2018 (the record date), with the corresponding ex-dividend date being 6 December 2018. The Ordinary share and C share dividends will be paid as REIT property income distributions ("PID").


As noted in the announcement of the conversion of the C shares on 15 November 2018, the Board intended to declare a dividend for holders of the Ordinary shares for the period from 1 October 2018 to the conversion date, being 21 December 2018. This will be the pro rata share of the quarterly dividend for the quarter ending 31 December 2018.


The Company also noted the expectation to declare a dividend for the period from the conversion date on 21 December 2018 to 31 December 2018 (i.e. the remaining pro rata share of the dividend for the quarter ending 31 December 2018) in February 2019. The Ordinary shares arising on conversion of the C shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary shares for any dividends or distributions declared after the conversion date.
