FIRST QUANTUM DECLARES A FINAL DIVIDEND OF CDN$0.005 PER SHARE
First Quantum Minerals Ltd.'s board of directors has approved a final dividend of 0.5 cent per share in respect of the financial year ending Dec. 31, 2021. This, together with the interim dividend of 0.5 cent, makes a total of one cent for the 2021 financial year. The dividend will be paid on May 6, 2022, to shareholders of record on April 14, 2022.
The company has established a dividend reinvestment and share purchase plan for its Canadian resident shareholders.
The plan enables eligible shareholders to reinvest the cash dividends paid on all or a portion of their common shares into additional common shares, which will be issued at 97 per cent of the average market price (as defined in the plan) and provides the opportunity to make optional cash purchases of additional common shares on a semi-annual basis, on dividend payment dates.
To participate in the plan, registered eligible shareholders must deliver a properly completed enrolment form to Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as directed under the plan, by no later than 4 p.m. ET on the fifth business day immediately preceding a dividend record date in order for the cash dividend to which such record date relates to be reinvested under the plan.
The dividends paid are considered eligible dividends for Canadian tax purposes.
We seek Safe Harbor.
