The Sabre Insurance Directors have proposed a total final dividend of 11.7p per share in respect of 2020, consisting of an ordinary final dividend of 6.8p per share and a special dividend of 4.9p. The total amount proposed to be distributed to shareholders by way of dividends for 2020 is therefore 16.0p per share, including the ordinary interim dividend of 4.3p per share. This does not include the special dividend of 5.2p per share paid in August 2020, which represented a deferral of the 2019 special dividend. Including this, the total dividend paid and declared in respect of 2020 is 21.2p per share. Excluding the capital required to pay this dividend, the Group's SCR coverage ratio at 31 December 2020 would be 155%. This is consistent with the Group's policy to pay an ordinary dividend of 70% of profit after tax, and to consider passing excess capital to shareholders by way of a special dividend.
