Dividend per share (GBp)

Holders of shares on the UK register will be paid their dividends in sterling.

Shareholders on the Hong Kong branch register will be paid dividends in Hong Kong dollars. The 2019 first interim dividend payable to the shareholders on the Hong Kong branch register will be translated using the exchange rate quoted by the WM Company at the close of business on 13 August 2019.

If you hold your shares in a securities account with The Central Depository (Pte.) Limited (CDP), the amount you receive will be calculated at the Hong Kong Dollar / Singapore Dollar exchange rate as determined by CDP.

If you hold American Depositary Shares listed on the New York Stock Exchange, you will receive your dividends in dollars. One American Depositary Receipt represents 2 ordinary shares and therefore the UK dividend per share is multiplied by 2 and the result is then converted into US dollars at the prevailing rate.
