BP today announced an interim dividend of 5.46 cents per ordinary share which is expected to be paid on 17 December 2021 to ordinary shareholders and American Depositary Share (ADS) holders on the register on 12 November 2021. The ex-dividend date will be 10 November 2021 for ADS holders and 11 November 2021 for ordinary shareholders. The corresponding amount in sterling is due to be announced on 7 December 2021, calculated based on the average of the market exchange rates over three dealing days between 1 December 2021 and 3 December 2021. Holders of ADSs are expected to receive $0.3276 per ADS (less applicable fees). The board has decided not to offer a scrip dividend alternative in respect of the third quarter 2021 dividend. Ordinary shareholders and ADS holders (subject to certain exceptions) will be able to participate in a dividend reinvestment programme. Details of the third quarter dividend and timetable are available at bp.com/dividends and further details of the dividend reinvestment programmes are available at bp.com/drip.
