"Jupiter continues to deliver healthy returns", said Jupiter CEO Priyank Thapliyal. "The yield on distributions by Jupiter since FY2017 are unprecedented in the mining industry, with the dividend yield for FY2019 being approximately 24%. Over the last three years, A$300 million has been paid out to shareholders, equating to approximately 50% of Jupiter's market capitalisation. This is very compelling considering Tshipi's 100 year mine life".


Since listing, Jupiter has far exceeded its stated 70% payout dividend policy. Given the quality of its Tshipi manganese asset, as demonstrated below, Jupiter aims to be a high dividend paying company throughout the cycle:


• One of the largest exporters globally

• One of the lowest cost mines

• Abundant resource for a 100 year life of mine

• 5mtpa load out infrastructure capacity

• Well established product"


1Dividend yield for the financial year to 28 February 2019, based on closing price of $0.31 on 18 February 2019.
