Base Resources’ dividend policy

Consistent with Base Resources’ growth strategy, the Company seeks to provide returns to shareholders through both long-term growth in the Company’s share price and appropriate cash distributions.

Cash not required to meet the Company’s near-term growth and development requirements, or to maintain requisite balance sheet strength in light of prevailing circumstances, could be expected to be returned to shareholders.

 

Mandatory direct credit

Base Resources’ interim dividend of AUD 3.0 cents per share, unfranked, for the six month period ended 31 December 2021 (FY22 Interim Dividend) was paid by direct credit only.  Mandatory direct credit will also apply to any future cash dividends paid by Base Resources.

Shareholders and depositary holders that did not provide valid banking instructions for the FY22 Interim Dividend by the record date will have their payment held in a non-interest-bearing account until they have done so.  The same will also apply for any future cash dividends paid by Base Resources.
