Results of Dividend Election

RNS Number : 6993Y
07 December 2017


("RDI" or the "Company" or the "Group")

(Registered number 010534V)

LSE share code: RDI

JSE share code: RPL


LEI: 2138006NHZUMMRYQ1745


Results of Dividend Election


RDI shareholders are referred to the announcement released on 27 October 2017 regarding the election being offered to receive the second interim dividend of 1.3 pence per share in respect of the year ended 31 August 2017 as either a cash dividend or a scrip dividend by way of an issue of new RDI shares (of the same class as existing shares) credited as fully paid up ("Scrip Dividend").


The Company is pleased to announce that election forms for 512,886,592 ordinary shares of 8 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") have been received, representing a 27.2 per cent take up by shareholders, for which 16,218,190 Scrip Dividend shares are to be issued, being 0.9 per cent of the current issued share capital of the Company.


An application will be made for the Scrip Dividend shares, which will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to the Premium Segment of the Official List of the United Kingdom Listing Authority, to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities and to be listed on the JSE ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will occur on Monday, 18 December 2017.


This announcement is being made ahead of the proposed schedule, prior to Admission.


Following Admission, the total number of voting rights will be 1,905,132,887. No Ordinary Shares are held in treasury. The figure of 1,905,132,887 Ordinary Shares may then be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.


Withholding tax information for shareholders on the South African register


Further to the finalisation announcement released on Monday, 20 November 2017, shareholders on the South African ("SA") register are advised that an additional 5% withholding tax will have been deducted by the relevant regulated intermediary on the PID element of the cash dividend paid to persons who are not exempt from dividends tax in South Africa, which will be paid to the South African Revenue Service on the beneficial shareholder's behalf.


Shareholders who did not elect to receive the Scrip Dividend will accordingly receive a cash dividend calculated as follows:



Shareholders on the

SA share register

Non-PID element

7.31250 ZAR cents*



PID element (gross)

17.06250 ZAR cents

Less 20% UK withholding tax

3.41250 ZAR cents

Less 5% SA withholding tax

0.85313 ZAR cents

PID element (net)

12.79687 ZAR cents

*South African dividends tax at the rate of 20 per cent will apply to cash non-PIDs paid by the Company, unless the beneficial owner of the dividend is exempt from dividends tax (e.g. if the beneficial owner is a South African company or a non-South African resident). Since no withholding tax is suffered in the UK on cash non-PIDs, no rebate can be claimed. The relevant regulated intermediary will therefore be required to deduct 20 per cent tax on all cash non-PID's paid to persons who are not exempt from dividends tax in South Africa, and pay this to the South African Revenue Service on the beneficial owner's behalf. The non-PID element payable to shareholders on the SA share register net of this 20 per cent dividends tax is 5.85000 ZAR cents.


On application by the shareholder, assuming the shareholder is the beneficial owner of the dividend and is a South African resident for purposes of the South African - UK double tax agreement, a 5% rebate is claimable from UK's HM Revenue & Customs ("HMRC"), resulting in an effective UK withholding tax rate of 15%. The Company will account to HMRC in Pounds Sterling for the total UK withholding tax deducted. Settlement of any claims for refund will be calculated and settled in Pounds Sterling by HMRC.
