Polo plans a special dividend

AIM-listed miner Polo Resources yesterday unveiled a further special dividend after more than doubling its annual net profit and completing several asset sales. The firm, which has also completed a share buyback this year, posted a net profit of $65.2m (£40.5m) for the year to the end of June and said it will pay investors 2p per share following the sale of its interest in Caledon.
