Final and special dividend 2015

The Scottish Investment Trust PLC (SIT) will pay its final dividend of 7.50p per share for the year to 31 October 2015.

It was a strong year for income and SIT will also pay a special dividend of 3.50p per share. This, combined with the interim and final dividends, will result in a dividend totalling 16.00p per share for the year, an increase of 33.3% on the total regular dividend of the previous year and well ahead of the main measures of UK inflation.

The final and special dividends will be paid on 4 February 2016 to shareholders registered at the close of business on 4 January 2016.

SIT has increased its dividend for 32 years consecutively. In fact, SIT has either increased or maintained its dividend every year since the Second World War.
