Dividends

The Company has a progressive dividend policy and, subject to external factors such as changes in the economic environment and taxation, the Directors seek to manage the assets of the Company to generate a growing revenue stream which will allow them to continue to declare increasing dividends year on year. We will normally pay our dividends at the end of March, June, September and December.

Looking forward to 2016, subject to market conditions, we intend to continue our dividend policy to target an ever increasing dividend per share from revenue earnings. All net income will be paid out as ordinary dividends. As such, future dividend progression will be measured through increases in ordinary dividends.
