At the 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on 5 May 2022, shareholders approved the renewal of the Scrip Dividend Scheme.

If you would like to join the Scheme for future dividends, please return to the registrar, Equiniti, a completed scrip dividend mandate form.

To be effective for a particular dividend you must complete and return your mandate so as to be received by Equiniti no later than 15 business days before the dividend payment date.

You can download the scrip dividend mandate form and the scrip dividend booklet or alternatively obtain them from Equiniti by telephoning +44 (0)371 384 2268. Please use the country code when calling from outside the UK. Lines are open from 08:30 to 17:30 (UK time), Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays in England and Wales).

 

The Company did not pay any dividends in respect of the financial years 2020, 2021 or 2022. Following the Group's improved financial performance, strong net cash position and attractive growth prospects, the Company will resume dividend payments for the six months ended 30 June 2023.
