Strike Price for Dividend Reinvestment Plan

Abano Healthcare Group Limited advises that the strike price for shares issued in lieu of the cash 2012 final dividend under its Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) is $4.55 per share.

The issue price has been determined, in accordance with the DRP, as the volume weighted average sale price for all Abano shares sold on the NZX over the five trading days immediately following the record date of 10 August 2012, less a 2.5% discount.

Shareholders who had elected to participate in the DRP will receive additional shares, instead of cash, in respect of the dividend payable on 24 August 2012.

The new shares will rank pari passu with existing shares.
