TORONTO, July 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Sprott Resource Corp. ("SRC") (TSX: SCP) announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a dividend in respect of the month of July 2013 in the amount of $0.035 per common share (the "July Dividend").
The July Dividend will be paid on August 15, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 31, 2013. The full amount of the July Dividend is designated as an "eligible dividend" for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
SRC has a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the "Plan") for Canadian resident shareholders of common shares of SRC. The Plan provides a convenient and cost-effective method for eligible holders in Canada to maximize their investment in SRC by reinvesting their monthly cash dividends to acquire additional SRC common shares. A discount in the purchase price of 5% will apply on dividend reinvestment shares purchased from SRC.
As previously announced, SRC's Board of Directors approved a policy (the "Dividend Policy") pursuant to which SRC intends to pay a monthly dividend at least equal to 0.833% of SRC's total equity attributable to shareholders ("SRC's Book Value") based on the most recently filed financial statements of SRC at the time the dividend is declared. The amount of future monthly dividends will accordingly fluctuate quarterly with SRC's Book Value.
The July Dividend is based on SRC's Book Value as at March 31, 2013.
