Residential Secure Income plc ("ReSI") (LSE: RESI), which invests in residential asset classes that comprise the stock of UK social housing providers, is pleased to declare a maiden dividend of 0.75 pence per Ordinary Share for the initial period from the date of admission to 31 December 2017. The dividend will be paid as an ordinary UK dividend on or around 9 March 2018 to Shareholders on the register as at 16 February 2018. The ex-dividend date is 15 February 2018.
ReSI is targeting a dividend of at least 3.0 pence per Ordinary Share for the first financial period from the date of admission to 30 September 2018. ReSI intends to pay dividends to Shareholders on a quarterly basis and in accordance with the REIT regime.
On a fully invested and geared basis, ReSI is targeting a dividend yield of 5% per annum based on the issue price of 100 pence per Ordinary Share, which ReSI expects to increase broadly in line with inflation, and a total return in excess of 8% per annum.
Separately, ReSI confirms that its first interim report will be prepared for the initial period from the date of admission to 31 March 2018 and will be sent to Shareholders by the end of June 2018.
These are targets only and not a profit forecast. There can be no assurance that the targets will be met.
