The Directors intend to adopt a progressive dividend policy whilst maintaining an appropriate level of dividend cover. This policy is intended to allow the Group to retain sufficient capital to meet both the working capital needs of the business and to fund the planned continued expansion of the Group in line with its roll-out strategy. The Board’s current intention is to target an initial payout ratio of approximately 10 per cent. to 20 per cent. of Group Adjusted Net Income. Assuming that there are sufficient distributable reserves available at the time, the Directors intend that the Company will pay an interim dividend and a final dividend in respect of each financial year in the approximate proportions of one-third and two-thirds, respectively, of the total annual dividend.
The Company may revise its dividend policy from time to time. There are no guarantees that the Company will pay dividends or the level of any such dividends.
Please refer to the Financial Calendar for details of dividend payment dates.
