At the meeting of the Board on 29 August 2008, the Board resolved to recommend, subject to approval by the Shareholders, the 2008 Interim Dividend of RMB0.052 per Share (tax inclusive) for the six months ended 30 June 2008 to be distributed to the Shareholders whose names appear on the Company's register of members on Saturday, 27 September 2008. The proposed distribution of the 2008 Interim Dividend will be submitted for the approval of the Shareholders at the EGM by way of an ordinary resolution.
Further announcement will be made by the Company at anytime before 27 September 2008 to set out the details of the arrangements regarding the settlement of withholding tax (if any) in relation to the 2008 Interim Dividend applicable to the overseas Shareholders.
the American Depository Share(s) issued by the Bank of New York as the depository bank and listed on the New York Stock Exchange, with each ADS representing 25 H Shares
So the dividend was RMB .052 per H Share. Each ADS = 25 H shares so the dividend is 25 * .052RMB = 1.30RMB. If the RMB to $US conversion rate is 6.8 then the dividend would be 1.30 RMB / 6.8 = $0.192 cents per ADS.
I don't know the exact exchange rate. There also may be a tax witholding adjustment.
