Dividend History

DIVIDEND HISTORY

FY18 Special Dividend

Tatts Group announced a special dividend of 16.0 cents per share on 11 December 2017. The final dividend was fully franked and was paid to owners of ordinary shares on the register at the close of business on 15 December 2017 (‘record date’). The ex-dividend date was 14 December 2017. Shares purchased on or after the ex-dividend date, do not qualify for the dividend.

The DRP for this special dividend was suspended.  The suspension was in accordance with clause 6.2(d) of the Merger Implementation Deed entered into between Tabcorp Holdings Limited and Tatts Group Limited on 18 October 2016. Accordingly all dividends due to shareholders were credited to nominated bank accounts or paid by cheque.

Important information regarding the payment of your dividends

Tatts Group pays shareholders with registered addresses in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom cash dividends by direct credit only.
