NCC Group announced dividends of £13.0m paid in the year (2020: £12.9m) comprised the final dividend for FY20 of 3.15p and the interim dividend of 1.5p per ordinary share for FY21 (2020: 1.5p). The Board is declaring an unchanged final dividend of 3.15p per ordinary share (2020: 3.15p).
This represents a dividend equal to that paid in the prior year as the Board is conscious of the need to invest in initiatives to support longer-term growth and service debt profile following the recent acquisition. The dividend policy will therefore continue to remain under review.
The final dividend will be paid on 12 November 2021, to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 15 October 2021. The ex-dividend date is 14 October 2021.
