The proposed final dividend of 2.5 pence per share for the year ended 29 August 2020 would be paid on 15 January 2021, subject to shareholder approval at an AGM on 12 January.

'At the conclusion of today's AGM, Hugh Pelham will be appointed as Chief Executive Officer, subject to election at that meeting and upon Tim Davies standing down from the board, the company said.
