Dividend Policy

Jadestone’s growth-orientated strategy has an objective of establishing a leading Asia-Pacific upstream company through acquiring and maximising the value of producing fields and development assets.  Jadestone prioritises organic reinvestment, and maintains a conservative capital structure in order to capitalise on inorganic growth opportunities as they arise.

Notwithstanding this, Jadestone believes that its production and development led business model is fundamentally pre-disposed to provide meaningful shareholder returns, particularly during times of higher oil prices.

Jadestone targets a sustainable base dividend, with a targeted split one-third to an interim dividend and two-thirds to a final dividend, growing over time in line with underlying cash flow generation.

The base dividend may be augmented over time by additional shareholder returns (in the form of share buybacks, special dividends and/or tender offers) if deemed appropriate.

In September 2019, Jadestone announced the adoption of a dividend policy.
  • Subject to the continued operational performance of the business, Jadestone indicated its plans to declare dividends semi-annually, split roughly one-third interim and two-thirds final.

On 9 September 2021, Jadestone declared a 2021 interim dividend of US¢ 0.59 per share.
