The Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) allows shareholders to elect to receive their dividends in shares rather than cash. DRP shares will be acquired ‘on market’ when the post-tax net tangible assets (NTA) is greater than the share price as at record date, thereby avoiding any potential dilution to the Company’s NTA and also assisting with closing the share price discount to NTA. New shares will be issued when the share price is greater than the post-tax NTA as at record date. All Directors intend to participate in the DRP, continuing to align the Board’s interests with our shareholders.

NSC seeks to protect investor capital whilst providing a stream of sustainable fully franked dividends and long term capital growth. The Company aims to provide investors with genuine, concentrated exposure to Australian undervalued listed small-cap companies (market capitalisation generally between $100 million and $1 billion) with an industrial focus.

These are proposed dates which may be subject to change. The payment of dividends by the Company is at the full discretion of the Board. Whilst the Company has indicated its intention to pay quarterly dividends, the Board, in line with its obligations at law and as a matter of prudent business practice, will always consider the Company’s financial position and ability to pay dividends before making any formal dividend declaration.
