("CMG", "Catalyst" or the "Company")
CMG is pleased to provide the following update in respect of its intention to distribute a dividend to shareholders further to its announcement of 30 December 2022.
The Board of CMG recommends the payment of a final dividend of 3.3 pence per CMG ordinary share (the "Dividend") to be paid from the earnings for the Company's financial year ended 30 June 2022 following the receipt of the Company's share of the recent dividend paid by Sports Information Services (Holdings) Limited in which the Company holds a 20.54% interest. Payment of the Dividend is subject to the approval of shareholders and an appropriate ordinary resolution will be tabled and voted upon at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting ("AGM") which has previously been notified to be held on 1 February 2023.
Subject to the passing of the requisite resolution at the AGM, the Dividend will be payable on 1 February 2023 to CMG shareholders on the register on 20 January 2023.
Following payment of the Dividend to shareholders, which will total approximately £0.694 million, CMG is currently expected to hold approximately £0.250 million in cash for its general working capital purposes.
A revised notice of AGM and form of proxy, incorporating the additional ordinary resolution in respect of the proposed final dividend, will be posted today to shareholders and made available to download from the Company's website at: www.cmg-plc.com. Shareholders who have already returned a form of proxy and who wish to vote on the additional ordinary resolution should complete and return the revised form of proxy.
