Flowtech Fluidpower Plc

The Flowtech Fluidpower Plc Board has taken the decision to rebase the dividend to a level that is sustainable and substantially covered by adjusted earnings over time. The additional financial flexibility will enable the Group to effectively progress its strategy to deliver on the value accretive opportunities it has created.

The Board has therefore declared a second interim dividend of 1.0 pence per share, bringing the total dividend for the year to 2.0 pence per share. This will be paid as an ordinary dividend on 13 May 2024, with an ex-dividend date of 4 April 2024. The Board will look to maintain a sustainable dividend going forward, with the intention that future dividends reflect the progression in underlying earnings.

Other financial highlights include:

Adjusted earnings up £4.2 million (1.2 pence per share) to £6.7 million (1.9 pence per share)

Contracted rent roll of £14.0 million (31 December 2022: £13.8 million), with £1.6 million of new rent offset by disposals and the expiry of rental guarantees

On an IFRS basis, a loss of £21.9 million has been reflected with the positive adjusted earnings primarily being offset by a revaluation loss in the year of £22.8 million.
