Nomad Royalty Company unveils Dividend Policy and declares Inaugural Quarterly Dividend
Montreal, Québec – August 26, 2020
Nomad Royalty Company Ltd. (“Nomad” or the “Company”) (TSX: NSR and OTCQX: NSRXF) is pleased to announce that the Company’s Board of Directors has adopted an annual dividend policy for the Company of C$0.02 per share, payable quarterly. The first quarterly dividend of C$0.005 per common share will be payable on October 15, 2020 to Nomad shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 30, 2020.
The implementation of our dividend policy marks an important milestone for Nomad. As part of its long-term strategy, Nomad is firmly committed to returning capital to shareholders through a regular dividend in order to generate lasting, reliable and consistent returns for its shareholders.
“Launching the dividend policy enables Nomad to differentiate itself by joining a group of companies that are committed to returning capital to shareholders. We are very happy to achieve this objective and look to build on this initial dividend level”, commented Vincent Metcalfe, Nomad’s CEO.
“The annual dividend of C$0.02 per common share represents a 2.2% yield for investors who participated in our initial financing only a few months ago, and represents, based on our last closing price of C$1.30 on the Toronto Stock Exchange, a significant yield of 1.5%, which will position Nomad as a leading dividend payer in our sector”, commented Joseph de la Plante, Nomad’s CIO.
For shareholders residing in the United States, the dividend will be paid in U.S. dollars based on the daily exchange rate published by the Bank of Canada on September 30, 2020. The dividend has been designated by Nomad as an “eligible dividend” under the Income Tax Act (Canada).
