Dividend Reinvestment Plan
The Board has not declared a final ordinary dividend for the year ended 30 June 2016.

The Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) remains suspended.

Billabong International Limited currently operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) which provides shareholders with the option of reinvesting all or part of their dividends in additional Billabong International Limited shares, without paying any brokerage or other entry costs.

Participation in the DRP is optional, but only shareholders with a registered address in Australia or New Zealand at the relevant dividend record date are eligible to participate.  

Dividends will be applied in subscribing for the maximum whole number of new Shares or acquiring on-market the maximum whole number of existing Shares for transfer to Participants (or a combination of both options).

If any cash balance exists, it will be retained in the Participant's account for the Plan, without interest.

The DRP Rules provide that the Billabong International Limited Board may, in its discretion, allow participants a discount in respect of the share price calculated under the DRP Rules in respect of a dividend.  Any discount will be announced to the ASX.

Details on the operation of the DRP are summarised in the Frequently Asked Questions below. If shareholders choose to participate in the DRP, their participation will be under the terms of the DRP Rules, which are also available below.

DRP Election/Variation Form can be downloaded below or are available from our Share Registry or you can update your details online through Computershare.
