Dividends

Kingfisher have changed how we pay dividends

At our 2017 AGM, shareholders approved changes to our articles which included changes to the method by which Kingfisher pays dividends.

Following this decision, the Board agreed to cease payment of dividends via cheque, beginning with the Interim Dividend payment in November 2018. From this point, all cash dividends will be paid through direct payment to shareholder bank accounts.
The Board believes that this change is in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders, and is the method of paying dividends we have encouraged for many years.

Shareholders who previously received their dividends via cheque will need to notify our Registrar, Computershare, of their preferred payment option. Please note that this change does not affect those shareholders who receive their Kingfisher dividends by direct credit already, or those subscribed to the Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP").

If we did not receive confirmation of your preferred payment option by 1 October 2018, your dividend will be retained until confirmation has been received. Details of the payment options available following this change are displayed below.

See our FAQs document for more information on the above change.

Details of the dividends payable during 2019 are set out in the table below.

Dividend reinvestment plan

Kingfisher operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan for shareholders who wish to re-invest their dividends for further shares in the company.

The Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP"), administered by our Registrar, Computershare, allows shareholders to reinvest their cash dividend in shares bought on the London Stock Exchange through a specially arranged share dealing service. There is no fee to join the DRIP and shareholders can opt-out, and receive their dividends by direct credit, at any time (subject to receipt of notification before DRIP election date in respect of each dividend payment).

If you choose to join the DRIP, your cash dividend, net of dealing commission and stamp duty reserve tax, will be used to buy Kingfisher shares. The dealing commission charge is 0.75% of the value of the shares purchased, subject to a minimum charge of £2.50, and stamp duty reserve tax is currently 0.5%.

Shareholders who wish to join the DRIP should complete a DRIP mandate form and return it to our Registrars. You can download a DRIP mandate form and view the Terms & Conditions on the Computershare website.

Alternatively you can join the DRIP online through Investor Centre, www.investorcentre.co.uk.
