Dividend details and correction to record date
G4S logo

G4S plc has proposed that a final dividend of DKK 0.3408 per share be adopted by the Company's annual general meeting to be held on 28 May 2010.

In Denmark, the dividend will be calculated by the VP Securities system as a dividend based on the holdings on 7 May 2010, and will be settled on 4 June 2010. We understand that the last day for trading cum dividend on Copenhagen Stock Exchange will therefore be 4 May 2010.

In its preliminary results announcement published on 16 March, G4S advised that its proposed final dividend would be paid on 4 June 2010 to shareholders who are on the register on 30 April 2010. This stated record date of 30 April was incorrect.

As mentioned above, any such dividend will be paid to those shareholders who are on the register on 7 May 2010.
