Integrated Diagnostics Holdings plc
Final dividend clarification
9 July 2021
(Cairo and London) - In reference to resolution 10 approved by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Company held on 30 June 2021, the Company notes that the final dividend to be distributed on 29 July 2021 amounts to US$ 29.1 million in aggregate for the year ended 31 December 2020 (as previously stated in the FY2020 and 1Q2021 results announcements issued on 19 May 2021 and 2 June 2021, respectively). This equates to a dividend of US$ 0.0485 per share (due to an administrative oversight the figure was rounded to three rather than four decimal places to US$ 0.049 in the AGM Circular and Summary of Proxy Voting documents issued on 7 June 2021 and 30 June 2021, respectively), and is 4% higher than the US$ 28.0 million in aggregate distributed in the previous financial year.
