2016 Final Dividend

Nil final dividend declared.

The company’s dividend framework provides for the setting of dividends as a payout ratio of underlying earnings, subject to business conditions.

Consistent with the company’s immediate focus to strengthen the balance sheet and reduce net debt, the Board has decided not to pay a final dividend. With the strong progress being made in reducing costs and improving free cash flow, the Board is confident in the company’s ability to return to paying dividends and will next review this position at the 2017 half-year results.
