What is your dividend policy?

The Group’s dividend policy, established at the time of Listing, is for the Board to consider the cash generation and financing requirements of the business and then to recommend a suitable dividend. This maintains flexibility which is appropriate given the underlying cyclicality of a commodity business. The Group has a strong record of payments to shareholders, with returns of $2,095 million in ordinary dividends, buy-backs and special dividends since its Listing in 2005.

Whilst the outlook for the Group’s financial position is positive, given the ramp up of Bozshakol and Aktogay and with net debt to EBITDA expected to fall rapidly, the Group has invested heavily in the projects and it is our near-term priority to continue to reduce our gearing metrics. Accordingly, the Board did not recommend a dividend in respect of the 2016 financial year, although it is the Board’s intention that the Group resumes dividend payments in the future.
