Dividend Information

The Board’s policy is to maintain a strong capital base in order to maintain customer, investor and creditor confidence and to sustain future development of the business. The Board considers total equity as capital. At 31 December 2022, this equated to £68.7m (2021: £60.2m).

Under the terms of the COVID-19 CLBILS facility, distributions are not permitted where there is an outstanding amount, with the last payment due in June 2023. The Board is therefore not proposing any final dividend payment for 2022 (2021: nil). The Group has a clear capital allocation discipline and is committed to returning future excess funds to shareholders via future dividend or share repurchase, subject to any restrictions under these facilities.

The Company has established the Dialight Employees’ Share Ownership Plan Trust (”ESOT”), in respect of which all employees of the Group, including Executive Directors, are potential beneficiaries. The ESOT held 225,451 shares in the Company as at 31 December 2022 (2021: 205,026) and it is likely that it will acquire further shares in the Company in 2023 in anticipation of future vestings under the DRSP. It is anticipated that the ESOT will waive any right to dividends payable in respect of any Dialight shares held by the ESOT.
