The Company’s ability to pay dividends is dependent on a number of factors and there is no assurance the company will be able to pay dividends or, if a dividend is paid, what the amount of such dividend will be.
Subject to the paragraph above, the Company intends to pay cash dividends from 2023 onwards, on the expected basis of a pay-out ratio of 40 to 70 per cent. of net income, dependent on required investment for additional growth plans. In the absence of any attractive investment opportunities that meet the Group’s investment criteria and return thresholds, the Group will distribute dividends at the upper end of the pay-out ratio range or potentially higher. The first interim dividend is expected to be paid in the second half of 2023 on the basis of net income for the first half of 2023. Any dividends are expected to be paid in cash. Please see the Prospectus for further detail.
