NATS to Pay Another £8.2M Interim Dividend to Shareholders
NATS, the UK’s leading air traffic control company, is to pay a second interim dividend of £8.2m to its shareholders, including employees, in respect of the year ending 31 March 2012.
This equates to 5.73 pence per share. The dividend will be paid to shareholders – HM Government, the Airline Group, airports group BAA and NATS Employee Share Trust – in proportion to their holdings.
NATS (En Route) plc, the company’s economically regulated provider of en route air traffic services, will fund £7.8m of the dividend with the remaining £0.4m coming from NATS (Services) Ltd, the non-regulated side of NATS’ business.
In June 2011, NATS paid a first interim dividend of £42.5m in respect of the year ending 31 March 2012.
