8 April 2020
The Board of Directors of Tritax Big Box REIT plc (ticker: BBOX) has today declared an interim dividend in respect of the period from 1 January to 31 March 2020 of 1.5625 pence per ordinary share, payable on or around 21 May 2020 to shareholders on the register on 24 April 2020. The ex-dividend date will be 23 April 2020.
This dividend will be a Property Income Distribution (“PID”).
Today, the Board has announced separately that it has withdrawn its FY2020 dividend guidance of 7.0p per share as the visibility over the economic impact and duration of the pandemic has reduced significantly following the necessary UK Government intervention.
The Board will continue to monitor the dividend position for FY2020 with potential to increase the quarterly dividend when it has better visibility.
