Dividends

We will only pay dividends out of cash which is truly surplus to the business, after making allowance for the costs of new Hobby centre openings, regular capital expenditure and maintenance, investment in tooling, plus a sum to ensure the business has sufficient working capital for its needs.

Common dividend questions

I am a non-taxpayer; can I have my Games Workshop dividends paid gross?

 UK legislation stipulates that all dividends are paid net of tax and so we are unable to pay them gross.

I’ve just found an old dividend cheque I forgot to cash. What do I do?

You should return the cheque to our registrars, Equiniti Limited, at Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex, BN99 6ZR, with a covering letter asking them to reissue the payment.

Does Games Workshop Group PLC have a dividend reinvestment plan?

Games Workshop’s dividend reinvestment plan was introduced in June 2002. The scheme allows investors to reinvest the dividend payment received on their Games Workshop shares in further GW shares and provides a simple way to increase holdings.

The main features of the scheme are as follows: Your cash dividend is used to buy Games Workshop shares at favourable commission rates. Your shares will be bought from the market as soon as possible after the dividend payment date at the prevailing share price. Commission rates are 0.5% of the value of the shares purchased with an additional 0.5% stamp duty reserve tax. There is no joining or leaving charge.

Please do not hesitate to call our registrars, Equiniti on 0371 384 2481 if you have any further questions.
