"We are pleased to declare our first quarter dividend for shareholders as we integrate and generate cash flow from the Central Region assets we acquired in the latter half of last year. Our commitment to target long-life, low-decline producing assets and their complementary midstream and processing facility assets has allowed us to pay and declare approximately $450 million in dividends alongside significant distributions benefiting our other stakeholders including significant debt payments, funding our comprehensive ESG commitments, and funding our asset retirement commitments including the purchase of two established well-retirement companies in Appalachia."


Diversified will pay the dividend in U.S. dollars while continuing to make available to shareholders a sterling election. For those shareholders who wish to receive their dividend payment in sterling, and who have not yet completed a currency election form, the Company has made available a dividend election form on its website at Shareholders who wish to receive sterling should submit the currency election form to Computershare Investor Services no later than 7 September 2022.


Diversified will announce the sterling value of the dividend payable per share approximately two weeks prior to the payment date.
