BP today announced an interim dividend of 5.46 cents per ordinary share which is expected to be paid on 25 March 2022 to ordinary shareholders and American Depositary Share (ADS) holders on the register on 18 February 2022. The ex-dividend date will be 17 February 2022. The corresponding amount in sterling is due to be announced on 15 March 2022, calculated based on the average of the market exchange rates over three dealing days between 9 March 2022 and 11 March 2022. 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 fourth quarter 2021 dividend. Ordinary shareholders and ADS holders (subject to certain exceptions) will be able to participate in a dividend reinvestment programme.
