GULF has been overwhelmed by a buying pressure for four straight days in an anticipation of recording higher profit in 3Q21 from a dividend payment from Intouch Holdings Public Company Limited (INTUCH) that the company recently acquired additional shareholding proportions from the tender offer, resulting in a 42.25% shareholding stake in the holding company.
On August 4, 2021, INTUCH announced an interim dividend payment of Bt1.23 per share from the operating results for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021. This payment date will be paid on September 2, 2021.
Meanwhile, GULF completed the tender offer for INTUCH on August 4, 2021, announcing that the company had accumulated INTUCH’s shares in a total of 1,354,752,952 shares, which is equivalent to 42.25% shareholding stake. This would result in a record of THB 1.67 billion as dividend income for GULF.
