Dividends

We aim to provide shareholders with attractive long-term and sustainable returns, primarily in the form of quarterly dividends.

These dividends are underpinned by our secure and stable income, which comes from our tenants within a group that is financially sound and committed to providing high standards of care. We benefit from long leases with inflation-linked annual rent reviews.

Through active asset management we also aim to deliver growth in net asset values over the medium term.

The Company introduced a progressive dividend policy under which it seeks to grow its target dividend in line with the inflation-linked rental uplifts received by the Group under the terms of the rent review provisions contained in the Group’s leases in the prior financial year¹.

Target Dividend 2021

For the year ending 31 December 2021, the target dividend is 6.41 pence per Ordinary Share¹ (the “Target Dividend”). As the Target Dividend follows rents received, any increase will follow after any rent increase.

1 This is a target only and not a profit forecast. There can be no assurance that the target will be met and it should not be taken as an indicator of the Company’s expected or actual results.
