Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC


23 February 2007

At the AGM today, Jamie Matheson, Executive Chairman said:

'I am pleased to report that trading in the first four months of the year has
been satisfactory. Against this background your Board has decided to declare a
first interim dividend of 2.875p, 15% up from that paid last year. This dividend
will be payable on 10th April 2007 to shareholders on the register on 16th March

Following the introduction of the International Financial Reporting Standards,
your Board has decided since there is no advantage in having two interim
dividends that next year we will adopt the more usual practice of declaring
interim and final dividends.

Therefore, we propose to declare a second interim dividend in September 2007,
payable as before, in October 2007.   We propose then to declare a final
dividend in late November 2007 with our preliminary announcement, payable in
April 2008.'
