All of these factors have combined to continue to drive cash generation in the business, with the board having sufficient confidence to pay a 6.5c dividend.


We believe that the outlook remains solid and that the business is in a strong position, from which the Company can either trade out or use the existing assert base as a foundation to expand its horizons.
