In light of the Covid-19 situation, following its half year results announced on 12 March 2020, the Board has decided to suspend the proposed interim dividend of 30.17 pence per share, reflecting the current priority of prudent cash management. The interim dividend, for which the ex-dividend date would have been 26 March 2020, will therefore not be paid on 17 April 2020 as previously scheduled. We understand the importance of the dividend to our shareholders and will keep our dividend policy under review in the coming months.
