M&G High Income Investment Trust P.L.C.
M&G High Income Investment Trust P.L.C. announces that at a meeting
of the Board of Directors held today, it was resolved to declare a
fifth interim dividend of 0.25p (2008: nil) per Income Share in
respect of the year ended 31 May 2009, to be paid on 25 August 2009
to Income Shareholders on the register at the close of business on 31
July 2009. The ex-dividend date is 29 July 2009.
The dividend will also be payable to holders of Income & Growth Units
and Package Units.
The 0.25p dividend is 0.05p higher than the level of dividend
anticipated in the Prospectus issued in February 2009 in connection
with the M&G Recovery Investment Company scheme of reconstruction.
The declaration of a fifth interim dividend represents a change in
the distribution pattern of dividend payments, reflecting the
decision of the board to pay out the majority of the revenue reserves
ahead of the rollovers of M&G Income Investment Company Limited and
M&G Recovery Investment Company Limited into the Company.
