- Regional REIT remains positive on the prospects for the group in 2016, said chairman Kevin McGrath in an AGM statement.

He cited a sustained growth in rental income and tight control of costs, accompanied by some further growth in assets and an active management of the portfolio mix.

"We see a strong underpinning for longer term NAV growth and returns to our Shareholders."

The Company would pay a dividend of 1.75p a share for the period Jan. 1 to March 31.

It is the company's current intention to pay three quarterly dividends at about this level in relation to the financial year 2016 and then a fourth quarter dividend to manage compliance with the 90% minimum REIT distribution requirement.
