Julian Treger, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"Commodity prices of our core commodities endured a difficult year to date, which has impacted on both reported royalty income and asset valuations. Despite this, your Board is pleased to announce a maintained interim dividend of 4.45p per share. This reflects our confidence in a long-term, albeit slower, global recovery in demand for raw materials coupled with the anticipated return of mining at Kestrel to the Group's land in the second half of 2015 and the continuing expansion and diversification of our royalty portfolio as evidenced by the recent acquisition of the Maracás royalty.
