New Transport paid| New Transport paid $6.90 per share capital dividend on the June 30 to its shareholders. New transport was the company formed after Lascelles’ shares were sold to Campari in 2012. The company was formed to hold the assets that were not sold at the time with previous Lascelles’ shareholders getting shares in the company in proportion to what they held before. The company also received some distributions from Campari based on the agreement that was struck. It’s unclear if this latest payment comes from sale of the assets taken over by the company or from Lascelles.
