AGL expects to return to 100% franking credits with FY11 final dividend

AGL Energy Limited (AGL) expects to return to fully franking future dividends commencing with the FY11 final dividend.

In August 2010, AGL advised the market that the FY10 final dividend and the FY11 interim dividend would be unfranked as a result of a cash refund expected to be received from the Australian Tax Office (ATO). That refund has now been substantially received.

AGL will report its FY11 full year results on 25 August 2011. The final dividend is expected to be paid on 29 September 2011.
