Dividend Declaration

 

Prudential has today announced its 2019 second interim dividend of 25.97 US cents per ordinary share.

 

As announced in the Circular published on 25 September 2019, Prudential has changed the presentation currency for its consolidated financial statements from pounds sterling to US dollars, starting with the full year ended 31 December 2019. Prudential now determines and declares its dividends in US dollars, commencing with dividends paid in 2020, including the 2019 second interim dividend.

 

Shareholders holding shares on the UK or Hong Kong share registers will continue to receive their dividend payments in either pounds sterling or Hong Kong dollars respectively, unless they elect otherwise.

 

Shareholders holding shares on the UK or Hong Kong registers may elect to receive dividend payments in US dollars. Elections must be made through the relevant UK or Hong Kong share registrar on or before 23 April 2020. Further information is available at www.prudentialplc.com/investors/shareholder-information/dividend/dividend-currency-election.

 

The corresponding amount per share in pounds sterling and Hong Kong dollars is expected to be announced on or about 30 April 2020. The US dollar to pound sterling and Hong Kong dollar conversion rates will be determined by the actual rates achieved by Prudential buying those currencies during the two working days preceding the subsequent announcement.

 

Holders of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) will continue to receive their dividend payments in US dollars through JPMorgan, the ADR Depositary.

 

Shareholders holding an interest in Prudential shares through The Central Depository (Pte) Limited (CDP) in Singapore will continue to receive their dividend payments in Singapore dollars at an exchange rate determined by CDP.
