At the closing price of Jupiter shares on the Australian Stock Exchange today of A$0.41, Red Rock's holding is worth A$7,595,214 (GBP4,251,876).

Andrew Bell, Red Rock Chairman, comments: "Jupiter continues to demonstrate the stability, consistency, and simplicity of the first-rate business it is. With a stated policy of a 70% payout ratio, it achieved 90% payout last year, and is on course to provide a continuing strong earnings and dividend stream this year.

We expect organic growth and consolidation of its interests to drive the business over the next four or five years, with EV materials potentially providing a significant source of incremental demand at the end of that period.

The significance to us of our holding in Jupiter is demonstrated by the fact that the value of our holding today is 34% in excess of our market value of GBP3,177,433".
