Announcement of Interim Dividend & Rent Collection Update


Declaration of Interim Dividend


The Company declares its interim dividend (property income distribution) payment in respect of the period from 1 July to 31 July 2020 of 0.3333 pence per share, as timetabled below:


Ex-Dividend Date:

13 August 2020

Record Date:

14 August 2020

Pay Date:

28 August 2020


This monthly dividend of 0.3333 pence per share equates to an annualised dividend level of 4.00 pence per share and is unchanged from the previous dividend declared on 8 July. 


Quarter 3 rent collection update

Rent collection for the quarter has progressed in line with previous forecasts, with the monthly rent payers continuing to meet commitments. As at 5 August 80.5% of the rent due by 1 August has been collected. The Company will have collected 90.4% of rent due for the quarter ending 30 September 2020 if the tenants who paid monthly for July and August continue to make payments for September. On this basis, the current dividend level would be 130% covered by rent collected (less expenses) for quarter three and potentially as high as 140%, after taking into account deferred rent covered by payment plans.
