2021 H2 Distribution - determination of currency amounts

Glencore confirms that:

1.    On 29 April 2021, the shareholders resolved to pay an aggregate distribution of US$0.12 per share in respect of the financial year ended 31 December 2020, payable in H1 and H2 in two equal tranches of US$0.06 per share from the capital contribution reserves of the Company. On 5 August 2021, the Company announced an additional distribution of US$0.04 per share to be paid alongside the H2 distribution. Therefore, the aggregate distribution amount for H2 will be US$0.10 per share, made from the capital contribution reserves of the Company

2.   this repayment is to be made in US dollars, although shareholders on the Jersey register who have opted for a different currency by 6 September 2021 will receive their distribution payments in either Pounds Sterling, Euros or Swiss Francs. Shareholders who formerly held shares through the Computershare Hong Kong nominee will receive distribution payments in US dollars unless they elected to receive payments in either Swiss francs, Sterling or Euros, or subscribe to the global payment service to elect to receive payments in the currency of their choosing (including Hong Kong Dollars), by 6 September 2021.  Elections will remain in place until revoked by the shareholder

3.   the Pound Sterling, Euro and Swiss Franc amounts payable are determined by reference to the closing mid exchange rates applicable to the US dollar on Thursday 9 September 2021

The following rates were published in the Financial Times guide to world currencies on Friday 10 September 2021:







Accordingly, for non US dollar payments the amount payable per share on 21 September 2021 will be approximately:

Pounds Sterling


Swiss Francs




An announcement was made in South Africa on 30 August 2021 regarding the determination of the South African Rand amount payable in respect of shares on the Johannesburg register.
