Dividend and AGM Notification

Personal Group PLC, a leading provider of employee services in the UK, announces that its second dividend for 2020 of 1.5p per share will be paid on 26 June 2020 to members on the register as at 22 May 2020 (the record date). Shares will be marked ex-dividend on 21 May 2020. The last day for elections will be on 5 June 2020.


As announced in the Company's preliminary results, the board has taken the decision following the outbreak of COVID-19 to continue the payment of this Q2 dividend albeit at reduced amount to that paid for  Q1. This measure of prudence was taken amidst the uncertain trading environment resulting from the pandemic and this shortfall, together with the remaining 2020 dividends will be revisited later in the year once the impact of the COVID-19 situation on the business is clearer. The Company maintains a strong balance sheet with no debt.  

Personal Group also announces that its Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2019 together with a Notice of Annual General Meeting and Form of Proxy were posted to shareholders on Monday 11 May 2020. These documents are available to view on the Company's investor relations website at https://www.personalgroup.com/why-invest/results-centre in accordance with AIM Rule 20.  

The Company's Annual General Meeting will be a closed meeting held at 2:00pm on Thursday 4 June 2020 at John Ormond House, 899 Silbury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 3XL.

Notes to Editors

Personal Group Holdings Plc (AIM: PGH) is a technology enabled employee services business, working with employers to drive productivity though better employee engagement and a more motivated workforce. With over 35 years' experience, the Company provides employee benefits and services to a large number of employees across the UK.

Personal Group's offer comprises in-house services, including employee insurance products (hospital, convalescence plans and death benefit), the provision of home technology via salary sacrifice (iPads, computers, laptops, smart phones and smart TVs), the provision of e-payslips, and pay and reward consulting via Innecto, the leading independent UK consultancy acquired in 2019. Third party services include retail discounts, employee assistance programmes, wellbeing programmes and salary sacrifice cars and bikes.

The product offer is provided via the Company's proprietary technology platform, Hapi. The platform is intuitive, designed primarily for app deployment and also accessible via web and tablet, driving better engagement, communication and value recognition. Hapi is flexible and can quickly integrate additional services, such as existing employee services and partner platforms. Hapi is a digital SaaS product.

Through technology and select acquisitions, the Company has grown its addressable market to the majority of the working population in the UK; including 15.6m SME employees targeted via its partnership with Sage, the UK's largest software company.  

Personal Group's innovative approach to using technology to deliver its programmes, in combination with its face-to-face method of communicating with employees, delivers a compelling offer to blue-chip clients across the UK as a way of attracting, retaining and motivating employees.  The acquisition of Innecto in February 2019 allows Personal Group to engage with clients earlier in their thinking around Pay and Reward, and to interact with a new base of blue-chip and fast growth clients typically at HR Director and CEO level.

Personal Group has a strong client base across a diverse range of sectors. Clients include: Arsenal F.C., Barchester Healthcare Ltd, DHL Supply Chain Limited, The Go-Ahead Group plc, Samworth Brothers Ltd, Independent Television News, Stagecoach Group plc and Wincanton plc.
