Triglav & Sava Went Ex-date

Yesterday, both Slovenian insurers on LJSE went ex-date. When comparing it to the closing price yesterday, Triglav decreased by 4.3%, which is fairly lower than the DY of 6.3%, while Sava Re decreased by 5.4%, which is also lower than the DY of 6.4%.

Taking a look at Triglav, this refers to EUR 2.5 DPS, which implied a DY of 6.3% at the price before the proposal. The total amount of dividends of EUR 56.8m will slightly exceed 50% of the Company’s consolidated net profit of the previous year. We note that the company has been a consistent dividend payer prior to the pandemic, paying out EUR 2.5 per share for 5 consecutive years (as visible on the graph below).

In the graph below, we are bringing you a historical overview of the company’s dividend per share and dividend yield. Note that the yields were calculated based on the closing price the day before the initial dividend proposal.
