Issuance and allotment of new Maybank Shares as well as payment of cash dividend to the Entitled Shareholders
Wednesday, 28 December 2011
On 22 August 2011, the Board proposed a final cash dividend in respect of the financial year ended 30 June 2011 of RM0.32 per Maybank Share less 25% taxation ("
Final Cash Dividend"). The Board had also determined that the Dividend Reinvestment Plan will apply to the Final Cash Dividend in which an electable portion of RM0.28 (RM0.21 net of taxation) per Maybank Share held ("Electable Portion") can be elected to be reinvested into new Maybank Shares and the remaining portion of RM0.04 (RM0.03 net of taxation) per Maybank Share held will be paid in cash.
Each Entitled Shareholder has the following options in respect of the Electable Portion:
(a) Elect to receive the Electable Portion in cash; or
(b) Elect to reinvest the entire Electable Portion into new Maybank Shares credited as fully paid-up at the issue price of RM7.30 per new Maybank Share, which was fixed on 15 November 2011.
A copy each of the Information Memorandum together with the DRP Statement, a Notice of Election and a Dividend Reinvestment Form ("
DRP Documents") was despatched to all our Entitled Shareholders (save for the foreign-addressed shareholders) on 2 December 2011.
Any issuance of new Maybank Shares pursuant to the Notice of Election (including the Dividend Reinvestment Form) is subject to the terms and conditions stated in the DRP Documents issued by Maybank. The number of new Maybank Shares and the amount of cash that are set out in the Dividend Reinvestment Form have been computed based on your entitlement for the Final Cash Dividend.
The rationale of Maybank embarking on the DRP is as follows:
(a) To enhance and maximise shareholders’ value via the subscription of new Maybank Shares where the issue price of a new Maybank Share shall be at a discount;
(b) To provide the shareholders with greater flexibility in meeting their investment objectives, as they would have the choice of receiving cash or reinvesting in Maybank through subscription of additional Maybank Shares without having to incur material transaction or other related costs; and
(c) To benefit from the participation by shareholders in the DRP to the extent that if the shareholders elect to reinvest the Electable Portion into new Maybank Shares, the cash which would otherwise be payable by way of dividend will be reinvested to fund the continuing business growth of the Maybank group. The DRP will not only enlarge Maybank’s share capital base and strengthen its capital position, but will also add liquidity of Maybank Shares on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.
