HOW OFTEN DOES BURFORD CAPITAL REPORT RESULTS?

The annual report and accounts covering the year ended 31 December each year are dispatched within six months of that date. Shareholders also receive an unaudited interim report covering the six-month period ended 30 June each year, which is dispatched within three months of that date. Burford’s reporting currency is US dollars.

WHAT IS BURFORD CAPITAL’S DIVIDEND POLICY?

Each year, once the prior year’s financial results are known, the Burford Board reviews the company’s profits, cash generation and cash needs, and recommends a dividend level to shareholders for consideration at Burford’s AGM. Given a general recovery in the market environment, Burford’s performance in 2020 and its strong liquidity position, the Board recommended a resumption of the dividend at its pre-pandemic level of 12.5 US cents per share by payment of a final dividend for 2020 of that amount.  Burford anticipates maintaining that dividend level going forward; given the demand for its capital in the legal finance marketplace and the tax inefficiency of its dividend payment to US investors, Burford does not anticipate regular increases in its dividend level but rather will review dividend levels with shareholders and the Board from time to time.

DOES THE COMPANY HAVE AN EMPLOYEE SHARE INCENTIVE PLAN?

Yes, the company has a long-term incentive plan designed to align employee incentives with those of shareholders. Details about the plan can be found here. The Remuneration Committee determines eligibility for awards and oversees the operation and administration of the plan.
