Third quarter interim dividend for 2018
Payments of dividends in sterling
 
On 30 October 2018, the Directors of BP p.l.c. announced that the interim dividend for the third quarter 2018 would be US$0.1025 per ordinary share (US$0.615 per ADS). This interim dividend is to be paid on 21 December 2018 to shareholders on the share register on 9 November 2018. The dividend is payable in cash in sterling to holders of ordinary shares and in US dollars to holders of ADSs. A scrip dividend alternative has been made available for this dividend allowing shareholders to elect to receive their dividend in the form of new ordinary shares and ADS holders in the form of new ADSs.
 
Sterling dividends payable in cash will be converted from US dollars at an average of the market exchange rate over the four dealing days from 4 to 7 December 2018 (£1 = US$1.27725). Accordingly, the amount of sterling dividend payable in cash on 21 December 2018 will be:
 
8.0251 pence per share.
