The Board of directors has approved and declared a final dividend of 72 cents per ordinary share.
The final dividend of 72 cents per share, results in a full dividend cover of 2.04 for the 2018 year which is in line with Old Mutual Limited’s dividend
cover target of 1.75x to 2.25x. The final dividend will be paid out of distributable reserves and is payable on 29 April 2019 to all ordinary shareholders recorded on the record date. The dividend of 72 cents per ordinary share will be subject to
a local dividend tax rate of 20% which will result in a net final dividend, to those shareholders who are not exempt from paying dividend tax, of 57.6 cents per ordinary share. International shareholders who are not exempt or are not subject to a
reduced rate in terms of a double taxation agreement will be subject to dividend withholding tax at a rate of 20%.
Shareholders on the London, Malawian, Namibian and Zimbabwean registers will be paid in the local currency equivalents of the final dividend. In Malawi, Namibia and Zimbabwe these distributions will be made through dividend access trust or similar arrangements
established in each country and will not be subject to South African withholding tax.
Old Mutual Limited’s income tax number is 9267358233. The number of ordinary shares in issue in the company’s share register at the date of declaration is 4,942,048,355.
Share certificates for shareholders on the South African register may not be dematerialised or rematerialised between Wednesday, 27 March and Friday, 29 March 2019, both dates inclusive. Transfers between the registers may not take place between Tuesday,
19 March and Friday, 29 March 2019, both dates inclusive. Trading in shares held on the Namibian section of the principal register through Old Mutual (Namibia) Nominees (Pty) Limited will not be permitted between Tuesday, 19 March and Friday,
