Dividend Policy

Evolution introduced its revenue-linked dividend policy in February 2013. There have now been fifteen consecutive dividends paid in each half-year since that date. In August 2017, the Board approved a change to the dividend policy of whenever possible paying a half-yearly dividend equivalent to 50% of the Group’s after tax earnings. The policy was updated in August 2019 when the Directors approved a change to the dividend policy of whenever possible paying a dividend based on free cash flow generated during a year. The Directors will, on a bi-annual basis, assess the group cash flow and outlook for the business with the intention to return excess cash to shareholders and targeting a level around 50% of cash flow. The Group’s free cash flow is defined as cash flow before debt and dividends.
