Jupiter has already proved its worth as an investment for Red Rock, Bell continued.
“Jupiter has over the last 18 months exceeded its benchmark 70% dividend payout ratio, and the significant strengthening in the manganese price over the last two months testifies to the resilience of underlying demand. The company expects a continued growth over time in the level of contributions received from its holding in Jupiter."
