RDL Realisation plc (the "Company")
The Directors of the Company are pleased to declare a special dividend of £1.06 per ordinary share (equivalent $1.30 per ordinary share) (the "Special Dividend") in respect of the year ended 31 December 2019.
The Special Dividend will be paid on 19 May 2020 to shareholders on the register as of 17 April 2020. The ex-dividend date is 16 April 2020.
The Company has elected to designate 4.56% of the Special Dividend as an interest distribution to its shareholders in order to maintain its investment trust status and 95.44% as a dividend distribution to its shareholders.
As a part interest distribution, the Company is taking advantage of UK tax treatment by "streaming" income from interest-bearing investments into dividends that will be taxed in the hands of shareholders as interest income.
