Subject to the approval by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting, the final dividend will be paid on 12 July 2019 to those shareholders on the register on 7 June 2019.

In addition, the Company announced that shareholders can choose to receive dividends in Pounds Sterling and they can do so at the rate ruling on 7 June 2019, being the dividend record date.
