INSURANCE AUSTRALIA GROUP

IAG has set aside a big chunk of cash to cover BI claims. This from the company results statement recently;

“While our business has been relatively stable, our profitability was affected by the pre-tax $1.15 billion expense we announced in November for potential business interruption claims relating to COVID-19. Our business interruption policies were never intended to cover pandemics. However, following the Supreme Court of NSW Court of Appeal decisionon the COVID-19 business interruption test case, we conducted a detailed review to determine our potential exposure, and took action to strengthen ourbalance sheet.

This has helped ensure we remain well capitalised and we have today announced a dividend of 7 cents per share which represents a payout ratio of 37% of cash earnings. Over the past few months, we have put in place measures which I believe will further strengthen the business.”
