It takes Regis’ fully franked dividend payments to $170 million since 2013.
Regis finished the year with cash and bullion of $122.3 million and no debt.
“The robust cash operating margin has seen cash on the balance sheet build and has underpinned the payment of 13c/share in dividends for the year,” Regis executive chairman Mark Clark said.
“It is also exciting that our organic growth strategies are delivering opportunities to increase reserves and a higher medium-term production outlook.”
Regis shares were unchanged at $3.85 this morning.
