An interim dividend of $0.25 per share, which will be paid wholly in cash, will be paid on 22 November 2023 to shareholders registered at the close of business on 20 October 2023. The ex-dividend date will be 19 October 2023. The payment date is later than in prior years to facilitate shareholders taking any required actions to ensure the continued efficient management of the receipt of CRH dividends following the transition to a US primary listing on 25 September 2023 (the "Listing Change").

The 2023 interim dividend and future dividends will be managed by Computershare Trust Company N.A. (“Computershare”), which has been appointed as CRH’s Transfer Agent and Registrar in place of Link Registrars (“Link”).

Following the Listing Change, the default payment currency for dividends will be US Dollars. Shareholders intending to hold their shares through a Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) participant, whether in the form of Ordinary Shares which will trade on the NYSE or Depository Instruments which will trade on the London Stock Exchange, should contact their broker or custodian in relation to currency payment options. Shareholders who intend to hold their shares in registered form in their own name directly on the Register of Members (“Registered Shareholders”), rather than through a DTC participant, will have the facility to elect to receive dividend payments in euro, Pound Sterling or a range of other currencies through a service operated by Computershare, details of which will be communicated to Registered Shareholders in due course.

Irish Dividend Withholding Tax (“DWT”), currently 25%, will continue to apply to CRH dividend payments following the Listing Change, unless a shareholder is entitled to an exemption and has submitted a valid DWT exemption form to Computershare (or previously to Link). Computershare will also be required to apply US-backup withholding tax of 24% on dividend payments, unless a US tax certification document known as a W-8 for non-US shareholders, or a W-9 for US shareholders, is completed and returned to them. Further information, including instructions for the completion of the US tax certification by Registered Shareholders, is available here.

Preference Shareholders
Dividends in respect of 7% ‘A’ Cumulative Preference Shares are paid half-yearly on 5 April and 5 October. Dividends in respect of 5% Cumulative Preference Shares are paid half-yearly on 15 April and 15 October.
