Ayala understands that our shareholders view our dividends as a regular source of both income and capital returns and strive to maintain consistent distributions from year to year. Our policy is to treat all shareholders equally, ensuring payment of dividends in an equitable and timely manner — within 30 days after being declared and cleared. We continue to revisit potential sustainable increases in the regular dividend rate, with the continued capacity to make new or additional investments as the primary consideration.
