LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:
Pershing Square Holdings, Ltd. (LN:PSH) (LN:PSHD) (NA:PSH) (“PSH” or the
“Company”) today announced that PSH has initiated a quarterly dividend
of $0.10 per Public Share, representing a current yield of 2.5% based on
the closing price of $15.70 of PSH Public Shares on 12 February 2019.
PSH believes that instituting a quarterly dividend will expand PSH’s
investor base by attracting shareholders who prefer or require
dividend-paying equities. Expanding the PSH investor base may over time
assist in narrowing the discount to Net Asset Value at which PSH shares
For the calendar year 2019, the dividend will be paid according to the
following table.1 A proportionate quarterly dividend will be
paid per Management Share and the Special Voting Share, based on their

Dividend Reinvestment Programme
Shareholders may automatically reinvest cash dividends into PSH Public
Shares through a Dividend Reinvestment Programme (“DRIP”), which will
acquire shares in the market to fulfill DRIP demand. Shareholders who
would like to participate in the DRIP should follow the instructions
found here https://pershingsquareholdings.com/psh-dividend-information/.
PSH has appointed an affiliate of PSH’s Registrar, Link Market Services
Limited (“Link”), to act as the DRIP agent. PSH advises shareholders
that they will become clients of Link’s affiliate(s) upon participation
in the DRIP, and should review Link’s terms and conditions (including
fees, settlement, and other terms) available at www.signalshares.com.
Each shareholder is encouraged to speak to its advisor(s) when making a
decision as to whether to participate in the DRIP.
Dividends will be paid in US dollars unless a shareholder elects to be
paid in GBP. Interested shareholders must elect GBP no later than the
Currency Election Deadline. Further details about the currency election,
including how to select GBP, are available at Pershing Square Holdings’
website here https://pershingsquareholdings.com/psh-dividend-information/.
Each dividend is subject to the Company being satisfied that the
following conditions are met:
• the Company will meet the solvency requirements under Companies
(Guernsey) Law, immediately after the payment of the dividend;
• the Company’s total indebtedness will be less than one third of the
Company’s total capitalisation after the payment of the relevant interim
1 The dates in the table may change at the Board’s discretion
and each dividend will be subject to certain conditions being satisfied.
The Company’s Investment Management Agreement (“IMA”) did not
contemplate that a dividend would be paid. It did however contemplate a
redemption of capital, which is economically equivalent to the payment
of a dividend. Therefore, the IMA has been amended so that the effect of
a dividend on fees is exactly the same as that of a redemption. Since
this amendment of the IMA constitutes a small related-party transaction,
it is exempt from the requirements of Chapter 11 of the Listing Rules.
The amendment to the IMA has been approved by the independent directors
The decision as to whether PSH pays a dividend in the future will be
made by the PSH Board with the consent of the Investment Manager. While
PSH intends to pay a $0.10 quarterly dividend going forward, there is no
guarantee that PSH will continue to do so. PSH’s Board’s decision to pay
a dividend should not be interpreted to mean that PSH will be profitable
in the future.
