Confirmation of the 2017 Interim Dividend payment

and US Withholding Tax Forms


Diversified Gas & Oil PLC, the US based gas and oil producer, announced on 11 September 2017 an interim dividend of 1.99 cents per ordinary share for the six month period ended 30 June 2017 to be paid in USD to Shareholders on 20 December 2017 to those Shareholders on the register on 17 November 2017.



US Withholding Tax Forms (W-8 Form)


The Company also notifies Shareholders that the relevant forms issued by the Internal Revenue Service in the United States in relation to the payment of dividends arising from US assets and the payment of US withholding tax thereon, are available for download from the Company's website.  Shareholders that have previously completed and returned the relevant W-8 Form are not required to complete a further form (assuming their circumstances have not changed).


For non-US Shareholders who are individuals that have not previously completed the appropriate US Withholding Tax Form, Form W-8BEN (or W-8ECI in some cases) relating to US withholding tax for non-US investors should be completed.  For non-US Shareholders who are corporate entities, Form W-8BEN-E (or, if applicable, Form W-8IMY or Form W-8ECI) relating to US withholding tax for non-US investors should be completed.  In some cases, Form W-8ECI may be applicable to individual Shareholders that have other U.S. taxable income and file a U.S. income tax return.


For Shareholders who complete and return the US withholding tax form relevant to them, the rate of US withholding tax will be adjusted to a rate of between 0% and 30% depending on the elections provided by the Shareholder in the Form W-8 and in accordance with the withholding rate under the applicable double income tax treaty (for example, 15% under the US-UK treaty).


The US withholding tax forms are available from the Company's website To receive the dividend due to be paid on 20 December 2017 at the lower rate of withholding tax, those Shareholders that have not previously done so, must complete and return the relevant W-8 Form to Neville Registrars, 18 Laurel Lane, Halesowen B63 3DA. Forms must be received by Neville Registrars by 6 December 2017.


Shareholders who have not completed and returned the appropriate W-8 Form will receive the 2017 interim dividend and all future dividends after deduction of US withholding tax of 30%.


Shareholders requiring further information relating to W-8 US withholding tax forms may contact the Company on [email protected].
