Dividend Number 83
The board has taken cognisance of recent amendments to the taxation of dividends, and recommends that the annual gross dividend be increased by 24% to 335 cents (previously 270 cents) per listed N ordinary share, and 67 cents (previously 54 cents) per unlisted A ordinary share. If approved by shareholders at the annual general meeting on 31 August 2012, dividends will be payable to shareholders recorded in the books on Friday 21 September 2012 and paid on Tuesday 25 September 2012. The last date to trade cum dividend will be on Friday 14 September 2012. The shares will therefore trade ex dividend from Monday 17 September 2012.
In compliance with the requirements of Strate, the following dates are applicable:
Share certificates may not be dematerialised or rematerialised between Monday 17 September 2012 and Friday 21 September 2012, both dates inclusive.
By order of the board.
