Dividend Information

Dividend Policy

The Company targets to provide a sustainable dividend payout. With effect from FY2021, the Board proposes to consolidate its interim and final dividends into an annual core dividend of up to half its average sustainable profit after tax and minority interest (PATMI). Where appropriate, after considering the payment of core dividend, share buybacks, the financial resources needed for continued growth and the gearing level of the Group, the Board may consider paying a special dividend. This is part of a holistic capital management framework that recognises that the Group is in a growth phase, its gearing is low, and there is an intention to grow earnings on a per share basis.
