Scrip dividend

Tham khảo xổ số miền bắcThe Board of HSBC Holdings plc may offer to any holders of Ordinary Shares the right to elect to receive new Ordinary Shares instead of a cash dividend (‘scrip dividend alternative’).

The new ordinary shares will be issued subject to the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company and will rank equally with the existing ordinary shares in all respects.

The ‘Market Value’ of the entitlement to new Ordinary Shares under the scrip dividend shall be as nearly as possible equal to (but not greater than) the amount that would have been received by way of a cash dividend. The Market Value is the average of the middle market quotations for the Ordinary Shares on the London Stock Exchange, as derived from the Daily Official List, for the five business days beginning on the ex-dividend date. Since the dividend is declared in United States dollars, the average of the middle market quotations is then converted into United States dollars using the exchange rate quoted by HSBC Bank plc in London at 11am on the fifth business day beginning on the ex-dividend date, giving the Market Value for each new share.

The prices at which such shares were or will be issued (rebased to current share structure) are:

On 31 March 2020, HSBC announced it was cancelling the fourth interim dividend for 2019 amid the economic uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, and would not be paying the first three interim dividends for 2020.

Based on our results for 2020 and our forecasts for 2021, the Board will consider whether to pay a conservative dividend for 2020. Any such dividend would be dependent on the economic outlook in early 2021, and be subject to regulatory consultation. A final determination is expected to be made and communicated in February 2021 with our 2020 full-year results. We also expect to communicate our revised policy for dividends for 2021 and beyond at the same time.
