Nordgold has submitted the Notice of AGM and Proxy Forms to the UK National Storage Mechanism.
Nordgold’s dividend policy is to target a payout ratio of 30% of normalised net profit attributable to shareholders. The application of this policy would have generated a total payout of US$58.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. As Nordgold has already declared and paid US$58.5 million in interim dividends to shareholders in respect of 2015, the Board of Directors has decided not to recommend any further or final dividend for the year ended December 31, 2015 at the Annual General Meeting.
