The Board has declared an interim dividend of 7.5 pence per share, in line with the new dividend policy announced at our full year results in May. This means eligible full-time employees with the maximum allocation of 913 Free Shares will receive around £68 on 15 January 2020. This brings the total dividends since privatisation to £1,159 (before tax)*.

In May 2019, we announced that we have decided to rebase the dividend and change the dividend policy. From 2019-20, our policy is for a full year dividend underpin of 15 pence per share, which may be supplemented by additional payouts in years with substantial excess cashflow. This was not a decision we have taken lightly. We have sought to find the appropriate balance between investing in the future sustainability of our business, and shareholder returns.
