Dividend Policy 

The Board has revised the dividend payout from semi-annual to a quarterly dividend payout. The Board will target a payout ratio of 50% of Net Profits After Tax (NPAT), on an annual basis, adjusted for extraordinary items, after taking into consideration appropriate levels on leverage, capital expenditure plans and financing requirements, financial flexibility, anticipated cashflows and other administration costs associated with small dividend payments. In addition to cash dividends, the Company may buy back shares as part of its total distribution of capital to shareholders.
