Remarks :
The Board does not recommend any final dividends to be paid for the financial year ended 31 January 2020.

Total dividend declared in respect of the financial year ended 31 January 2020 amounts to 7.5 sen, equating to a 60% dividend payout ratio. For comparative purposes, total dividend declared in respect of the financial year ended 31 January 2019 amounted to 9.0 sen, equating to a 101% dividend payout ratio. This represents a departure from AMH's dividend policy of paying out at least 75% of consolidated profits for the financial year provided that such distribution will not be detrimental to our Group's cash requirements, or to any plans approved by our Board.

Given unprecedented levels of uncertainty and volatility globally stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board believes this prudent approach is the best course of action, allowing for liquidity to be conserved and our Group's balance sheet to be strengthened. The Board and Management are closely monitoring and proactively managing the COVID-19 situation, and its corresponding impact to business and operations.
