The Company is pleased to announce that it yesterday posted to shareholders its Annual Report for the year to 31 December 2020 and a notice convening the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of RiverFort Global Opportunities plc to be held at 1 Aston Court, Kingsmead Business Park, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP11 1LA on Friday 9 July 2021 at 10:00 am (the “Notice”).
Also, further to our announcement on 8 November 2020 and the announcement of our full year results for the year to 31 December 2020 on 8 June 2021, we are pleased to be able to declare, subject to shareholder approval at the forthcoming AGM, the payment of a final gross dividend of 0.04 pence per share. This would make a total gross dividend for the year of 0.06 pence per share.
We have consistently said that we are very much focused on creating value for our shareholders whether that be through capital growth and/or the payment of dividends. As a result, against the background of our sustained profitability, the Board is pleased to announce the payment of a final dividend.
Phillip Haydn-Slater, Non-executive Chairman commented:
“This is another very significant step in the continued progression of the Company. We hope that shareholders will be happy with all that the Company has achieved to date and we look forward to welcoming new investors seeking income as well as capital appreciation from their investments.”
The record date for this interim dividend will be Friday 16 July 2021, with the payment date expected to be Friday 30 July 2021. The Company’s shares will become ex dividend on Thursday 15 July 2021.
The Notice will also shortly be available on the Company’s website at https://riverfortglobalopportunities.com/
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on the AGM
Whilst the Government may lift the current remaining restrictions on non-essential public gatherings, it is possible that the current restrictions may continue in force. If the current restrictions do continue then it will not be possible for shareholders (other than to establish a quorum of two) to attend the meeting in person. Therefore, we intend to proceed on the basis of a closed meeting with a quorum of two (which would then be purely procedural in format), whilst reserving the right (in accordance with the provisions of our articles of association) to revert to an open, in person meeting. In any event, the Chairman has exercised his discretion to demand that all resolutions will be taken on a poll (with votes cast by proxy). If we are required to revert to an open meeting, we will make an appropriate announcement in due course but given the likelihood of this not being the case, we strongly urge all shareholders to submit their votes by proxy. There will be no presentations or Q&A at the AGM.
This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
