The Hansard Board has proposed a final dividend of 2.65p per share, the same level as last year. In making this proposal, the Board has carefully considered its current financial position and future outcomes under a range of plausible adverse scenarios taking into account Covid-19.
This dividend, if approved by the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on 4 November 2020, represents a total dividend of 4.45p (2019: 4.45p) per share in respect of the financial year. Such dividend will be paid on 12 November 2020 to shareholders on the register on 2 October 2020. The associated ex-dividend date is 30 September 2020.
