In accordance with the JSE’s dividend policy, the practice has been to return distributable cash to shareholders after ring fencing cash for regulatory capital requirements and investment (CAPEX and inorganic opportunities).
The ordinary dividend of 725 cents per share for 2020 represents a progressive 5% increase in nominal terms and translates into an ordinary dividend pay-out ratio of 83% (2019: 87%). The Board resolved to adjust the Group's dividend policy to reflect a pay-out ratio of 67% to 100% of current earnings. The previous pay-outrange was 40% to 67% of current profits, and the widened rangereflects the fact that cash generated exceeds NPAT, largely as a consequence of the technology investments in previous years.
This trend is expected to continue for the next few years.
