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.

Transition to mandatory direct credit

It is intended that cheque will no longer be offered as a payment method by the Company for any future cash dividends, with any such dividends to be paid by way of direct credit only – see below for details about how shareholders and depositary interest holders may provide their banking details in preparation for the move to mandatory direct credit.
