GIL’s dividend policy is to pay out most of the profit after tax after taking into consideration GIL’s requirements for future growth. GIL will declare dividend out of retained profit under certain circumstances.

The expected amount and key dates for dividends declared by the Board of Directors are advised via SGX-ST Announcements.

GIL has also adopted a scrip dividend scheme, which will provide shareholders with the opportunity to make an election to receive dividends in the form of shares, instead of in cash. The Manager of GIL will notify shareholders when the scheme is activated.
