|Total annual dividend||5||0||10||40||40|
* 10 cents per share paid in June and September.
Under the guidelines, the Board would expect over time to distribute half of our net earnings, excluding abnormal gains.
The payout ratio is 40-60% of Reported Net Profit After Tax but excluding abnormal gains.
In addition to the payout ratio, two additional key principles will guide the Board when considering the payment of a dividend:
The distribution of any abnormal gains, such as an asset sale, will be considered separately.
An interim dividend will not be more than 40% of the forecast total dividend and no more than net earnings at half-year.
The Board will apply these guidelines at its discretion, alongside any factors it considers relevant.
