The company also declared a dividend of 2 cents with dividend ex-date as October 15, 2018 and dividend payable date as November 11, 2018 which takes the fully year dividend to 4 cents a share compared with the 10 cents it paid the year before.

Provided that TPG’s Net Debt balance at that time is below the agreed target Net Debt of $2,024m, TPG may distribute a fully franked Cash Special Dividend near implementation of the merger, as part of the Merger which the parties have agreed upon.
