Glanbia Co-op to pay out €6.5 million dividend
Glanbia Co-operative Society will this week distribute €6.5 million in Ordinary Share Interest (Dividend) to eligible Members.
The Co-op’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 25 May approved a Share Interest (Dividend) payment of 17.3 cent per share (totalling €6.5 million) for 2022, which is 5% higher than the previous year.
Glanbia Co-op chairman John Murphy said that the Board is very conscious of the importance of a progressive dividend policy to Co-op Members. “Our Co-op share interest (dividend) payment has increased by 73% since 2017,” he said. “Total share interest of €45.8 million or €1.26 per share has been paid in that period,” he added.
Glanbia Co-op Chief Executive Jim Bergin said that work is progressing on the completion of the previously announced spin-out of 12 million Glanbia plc shares to Co-op Members.
Members with any questions regarding the payment of their Share Interest or Spin-out should contact the Glanbia Co-op Shares Office on 058-44444.
