Zhaikmunai has intensified its preparatory work in contemplation of a possible alternative listing on the Main Board in London or elsewhere, with a view to increasing share liquidity and possibly allowing for index inclusion. More generally such an alternative listing would likely also contribute to Zhaikmunai’s overall visibility in the financial markets.
Approval by bondholders in March 2012 of certain amendments and waivers in relation to Zhaikmunai LLP’s US$ 450 million 10.50% Senior Notes due 2015 marked a first step in this direction. Preparatory work is currently underway that would allow Zhaikmunai to proceed with such an alternative listing if its management and limited partners decide to do so.
October 2012 - Payment of Inaugural Dividend
At its meeting held on 10 September 2012, the Board of Directors of Zhaikmunai Group Limited, the general partner of Zhaikmunai L.P., approved the payment of a first distribution of US$ 0.32 per common unit/GDR to the holders of Zhaikmunai L.P. common units and GDRs, representing a cash distribution of US$ 60.2 million (equal to 20% of retained earnings at 30 June 2012). The distribution was made payable on 2 October 2012 to common unit holders on the register of partners and interests at the close of business on 1 October 2012.
October 2012 – Approval of Dividend Policy Going Forward
In addition, the Board of Directors approved the implementation of an ongoing distribution policy with the intention of making an annual distribution of not less than 20 per cent of the partnership’s consolidated net profit. This policy reflected Zhaikmunai’s desire to recognize the growth and cash generation inherent in the business. In the future, the policy is to be progressively reviewed by the Board of Directors in line with the achievement of Zhaikmunai’s strategic milestones.
