Honeycomb Investment Trust plc (the "Company")
The Directors of Honeycomb Investment Trust plc have declared an interim dividend of 20.00 pence per ordinary share for the three-month period to 30 September 2020.
The dividend will be paid on 29 December 2020 to holders of ordinary shares on the register as of 27 November 2020. The ex-dividend date is 26 November 2020.
The Company has elected to designate all the interim dividend for the period, as an interest distribution to its shareholders. In doing so, 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.
Investors who are eligible to receive the interest distribution without deduction of UK tax should complete the Declaration of Eligibility Form which can be found on the Company's website http://www.honeycombplc.com/documents/.
Investors who wish to join the Dividend Reinvestment Plan should complete the Company form which can be found on the Registrar's website http://www.computershare.com/uk/individuals/im-a-shareholder/dividend-reinvestment-plan or telephone 0370 707 1694.
The last date for receipt for elections for the Dividend Reinvestment Plan is 11 December 2020.
