Andrew Bell, Chairman, comments: “Jupiter continues to show strong cash generative abilities with what we believe to be a lower cost base than its peer group; with a hundred year life of mine this makes it able to strengthen its position in poor markets as well as good. The board’s discipline in not only maintaining but exceeding its stated high dividend payout policy makes this an unusual company. We expect Jupiter to build on its position as one of the leading low cost producers globally”.
The closing price of Jupiter shares on the Australian Stock Exchange on 30 October 2019 was A$0.325, making Red Rock’s holding worth A$5,533,097.
