18SA It may make a 50% payout if the total dividend is equal to or higher than the current share price. If this makes the payment of dividends for individual 10% share difficult, the shareholder dividend is reduced by 5 and this amount added to the company treasury (e.g. a dividend of 90 would result in a shareholder dividend of 45, making payment of 4 per share problematic, so the shareholder dividend would be reduced to 40 and the deducted 5 added to the company treasury).
