Dividend Payment Policy of the Company

Historical Dividend Payment / Dividend Yield
Dividend policy payout of no less than 50% of NPAT. We aim for a dividend yield that is competitive with the SET50 Index

For FY 2016/17 and beyond, the Company’s dividend policy reverts to no less than 50% of the net income after tax in accordance with the Company’s financial statements (on a standalone basis). Given the investment cycle that the existing opportunity set provides, it is reasonable to expect a decline in BTS Group’s absolute dividend payment, although we would aim to pay a dividend that is competitive with the constituent companies of the SET50 Index.
