    What Does Interim Dividend Mean?
    A dividend payment made before a company's AGM and final financial statements. This declared dividend usually accompanies the company's interim financial statements.

    Investopedia explains Interim Dividend

    Dividend Policy: (1999)

    Blue Square also adopted a policy, effective as of the beginning of 1999, of distributing an annual dividend of generally up to 50% of the net profits of the Company available for distribution, taking into account the business plans of the Company, its investment programs and liquidity, as well as the general economic situation and condition of the national economy and the sector in which the Company operates.

    ***This dividend policy may be changed at any time at the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company.
