Jarvis Securities Plc ('the Company')
Jarvis Securities Plc ('Jarvis Securities') announces that it has won a contract
to provide settlement services to Falcon Securities (UK) Limited, a member firm
of The London Stock Exchange. This brings contract wins this year to three.
Trading is comfortably in line with market expectations and the Company will
start to benefit from these new contracts in the second half of the year.
On the back of this progress, the Company announces its intention to pay an
interim dividend of 2.5p (total for 2004: 4p) on 1 June 2005 to the Company's
shareholders on the register on 13 May 2005. The Company's shares will therefore
go ex-dividend on 11 May 2005. The Company has historically paid dividends in
June and December; from the end of this year it intends to pay dividends
following publication of the interim and final results and consequently the
timing of payments will change.
