Scrip dividend reference price

The Company announces that the scrip dividend reference price for the fully paid shares in the Company to be issued to shareholders who elect to receive the scrip dividend alternative for the second quarterly dividend for the year ending 31 March 2020 is 212.50 pence per ordinary share of one penny each. The second quarterly dividend scrip alternative will be treated as a PID.

The scrip dividend reference price is calculated from the average of the closing middle market quotations for the Company's ordinary shares as taken from the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List for the five consecutive business days commencing on the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date was 17 October 2019.

To receive the dividend scrip alternative, shareholders need to make the election ahead of the dividend election date (the "Election Date") on 1 November 2019. Certificates in respect of the new ordinary shares will be despatched on the dividend payment date (15 November 2019).

 

Scrip dividend

At the Annual General Meeting held on 14 July 2017, shareholders approved the introduction of a scrip dividend scheme (the "Scrip Dividend Scheme"). Shareholders can receive additional shares in the Company instead of their cash dividend, with no dealing charges or stamp duty incurred.

To elect to receive additional new ordinary shares of one penny each in the capital of the Company  instead of a cash dividend, shareholders need to log onto www.signalshares.com and follow the instructions.

For certificated shareholders, the election will apply to all future relevant dividends unless cancelled.

For shareholders who hold their shares in CREST, an election will be required for each relevant dividend.

Shareholders should read the Scrip Dividend Scheme booklet (the "Scheme Booklet"), which contains the terms and conditions applicable to the Scrip Dividend Scheme, before deciding to make an election. A copy of the Scheme Booklet can be found on the "Scrip Dividend Scheme" web page within the "Investor Centre" section of the Company's website www.nrr.co.uk.
