- HgCapital Trust pulled its final dividend but said it would pay a second interim dividend, citing coronavirus-led economic uncertainty.

'In light of the current economic uncertainty and restrictions in movement caused by Covid-19, HgCapital Trust, today announces that the board has declared a second interim dividend of 3.0p per share in place of the final dividend of 3.0p a share announced with the annual results,' the company said.

The company also said it would no longer seek shareholder approval to pay a final dividend of 3.0p per share to shareholders on 15 May 2020.

'The board has decided to maintain total dividends paid in respect of 2019 by paying a second interim dividend instead of a final dividend as previously announced,' HgCapital said.
