Basic earnings per share and dividends

03/09/20 08:09 augustine - HARWORTH GROUP PLC
Basic earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2019, fell to 7.9 pence (FY2018: 10.6 pence). An interim dividend of 0.3 pence per share (FY2018: 0.3 pence) equivalent to GBP1.0 million (FY2018: GBP0.9 million) for the 2019 financial year was paid on October 18, 2019. According to the Annual Report, as announced on April 30, 2020, notwithstanding the Group's balance sheet strength and liquidity, given the uncertain backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Directors considered its prudent not to recommend the payment of the final dividend for the 2019 financial year. As such, the total dividend for the year is therefore 0.3 pence per share (FY2018: 0.9 pence per share) or GBP1.0 million (FY2018: GBP2.9 million).
