*GKN did not pay a final dividend for 1999 but instead made a return of capital by way of a bonus issue of redeemable 'B' shares of 11.7p each to shareholders on the register on 26 May 2000. The majority of shareholders elected to redeem their 'B' shares in May/June 2000. Shareholders who still held their shares at 16 October 2000 received a dividend of 0.188p per share on 31 October 2000 for the four month period ended on that date. On 1 November 2000, GKN redeemed all outstanding 'B' shares at their nominal value of 11.7p each.
