      • GR-4.1.2

        The CBB will grant approval where it is satisfied that the level of dividend proposed is unlikely to leave the licenseeG vulnerable — for the foreseeable future — to breaching the CBB's financial resources requirements, taking into account (as appropriate) trends in the licensee'sG business volumes, expenses and performance.
