UK register

Shareholders holding shares on the UK register who have not elected to receive dividend payments in US dollars will continue to receive their dividend payments in pounds sterling and their dividend will be converted from US dollars to pounds sterling at the rate of one US dollar to 0.8026 pounds sterling.

 

Accordingly, the amount of sterling payable in cash on 15 May 2020 will be: 20.84 pence per ordinary share.

Accordingly, the amount of Hong Kong dollars payable in cash on 15 May 2020 will be: 2.0129 Hong Kong dollars per ordinary share.

 

The US dollar to pound sterling and Hong Kong dollar conversion rates set out above were determined by the actual rates achieved by Prudential buying those currencies during the two working days preceding the date of this announcement.
