Dividend Information

Please see below information relating to Genel Energy’s dividend.

Given the loss of cash flow following the closure of the Iraq-Turkey pipeline on 25 march 2023, and the lack of visibility on both the timing of pipeline exports resuming and the re-establishment of a reliable record of payments, Genel has suspended its dividend programme.

Genel is focused on building reliable and repeatable cash flows that support the re-establishment of a dividend programme.
