Trading and outlook
The Board's expectations for 2019/20 remain unchanged from the full year results statement issued on 30 May 2019.
Based on our expectations from Product Authentication & Traceability (PA&T) and the planned timings of cost cutting initiatives, the Group's performance is expected to be heavily weighted towards the second half of the year.
Subject to shareholder approval at today's AGM, the proposed final dividend for the year ended 30 March 2019 of 16.7p per share will be paid on 2 August 2019 to shareholders on the register on 5 July 2019. This, together with the 8.3p per share paid in January 2019, represents a full year dividend of 25.0p per share.
