Henderson Group extraordinary first quarter 2017 dividend



24 January 2017


Janus Capital Group Inc. ("Janus") today announced its intention to pay a first quarter 2017 dividend to Janus shareholders prior to the closing of the recommended merger with Henderson Group plc ("Henderson"), subject to the approval of the Janus Board.


With a view to ensuring equality of treatment of Janus and Henderson shareholders, the Henderson Board confirms its intention to pay Henderson shareholders an extraordinary dividend, reflecting its first quarter 2017 earnings, prior to the closing of the merger. The anticipated dividend payment will be of commensurate value to any Janus first quarter 2017 dividend, and remains subject to final Henderson Board approval.


Henderson will release further information regarding the quantum and timing of payment of this dividend in its first quarter 2017 trading statement on 19 April 2017. As a reminder, Henderson will announce its results and proposed final dividend with respect to the 2016 financial year on 9 February 2017.
