Bank of Georgia Group PLC (the “Company”) may by ordinary resolution declare dividends provided that no such dividend shall exceed the amount recommended by its Directors. The Directors may also pay interim dividends as appear justified by the profits of the Company available for distribution.
As Bank of Georgia Group PLC is a holding company, it relies primarily on dividends and other statutorily (if any) and contractually permissible payments from its subsidiaries to generate the funds necessary to meet its obligations and pay dividends to its shareholders.

Those shareholders who do not take advantage of the direct credit facility will be paid their respective dividend by cheque in British Pounds Sterling.
