FINAL DIVIDEND FOR 2012, ELECTION FOR STERLING DIVIDEND, AND RESULTS OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

 

London, 29 April 2013  -  Randgold Resources confirmed today that at the Company's Annual General Meeting held at 8.30 a.m. today, 29 April 2013 shareholders approved a final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2012 of US$0.50 per share.  The dividend payment will be made on Thursday 30 May 2013 to shareholders on the register on Friday 10 May 2013.  The ex-dividend date will be Wednesday 8 May 2013.

 

The United States Dollar is the Company's main economic and reporting currency.  It is therefore the natural currency in which to determine dividends.  Nevertheless, shareholders wishing for the conversion of dividend payments into Pound Sterling may do so by completing a Pound Sterling election form which is available on the Company's website www.randgoldresources.com and posting it to the Company's registrars, Computershare Investor Services (Jersey) Limited to be received by Monday 13 May 2013, or by contacting the Company's registrars (Tel: +44 (0) 870 707 4040).  Shareholders who have previously elected to receive their dividends in Pound Sterling will continue to do so until such time as they change their election.

 

In addition, shareholders who have elected to receive Pound Sterling dividends can mandate payments directly to their UK bank or building society by visiting the Investor Centre website www.investorcentre.co.uk/je or by completing the dividend mandate form which is available on the Company's website www.randgoldresources.com and posting it to the Company's registrars to be received by Monday 13 May 2013.

 

The exchange rate for payment to those who have elected to receive their dividends in Pounds Sterling will be set on Wednesday 15 May 2013.

 

The Company also announces that at the Company's Annual General Meeting all of the resolutions were passed on a poll.  Copies of all the resolutions passed have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.hemscott.com/nsm.do.

 

A summary of the votes cast in respect of each resolution is set out below (a "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes for and against the resolution):
