Base Resources’ capital management 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
Prior dividends have been paid by direct credit only. Mandatory direct credit will also apply to any future cash dividends paid by Base Resources.
Shareholders and depositary interest holders that did not provide valid banking instructions for any prior dividends subject to mandatory direct credit 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.
Refer below for details about how shareholders and depositary interest holders may provide their banking details.
