    Statement re Dividend Update

    Admiral Group plc 27 April 2020Admiral Group plc (‘Admiral’, ‘the Company’ or ‘the Group’) provides an update on dividends and its response to the Covid-19 crisis.Admiral’s priorities throughout this challenging period have been to support and protect customers, staff and the long-term value of the Group.  All the Group’s businesses are operational with staff working remotely.Amendment to 2019 final dividend proposal In light of the regulatory guidance to insurers urging restraint on the payments of dividends due to the uncertainty of the current economic environment, the Board has decided to amend its recommendation in relation to the final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2019. After careful consideration, the Board is recommending an unchanged normal dividend of 56.3p per ordinary share (payable on 1 June 2020 to all ordinary shareholders on the Company's register of members at the close of business on 11 May 2020), but is suspending the recommendation to pay a special dividend of 20.7p per ordinary share.  The Board will review the position in relation to the special dividend alongside the Company’s half year results.  It currently intends to pay this part of the final dividend later in the year unless there is a significant deterioration in the company’s financial position, trading or outlook.Resolution 3 as set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Company will be amended at the AGM to reflect the updated Board recommendation.  All votes that have already been cast for or against Resolution 3 as set out in the Notice of AGM shall count towards the amended Resolution 3.The Group has significant liquidity and a strong solvency position, well above its target level and regulatory thresholds.  Robust stress tests against the Company's financial position support the payment of the previously announced final dividend in full under normal circumstances.  However, the Board is mindful of the call for heightened prudence from its regulators and has concluded that suspending the payment of the special dividend is appropriate at this time.An update will be provided when the Company reports its interim results in August 2020.Supporting customers, staff and the community The Board’s decision in relation to the final dividend is being taken in the context of a broader package of measures announced by Admiral on 21 April which aim to provide support to customers, staff and Admiral’s communities during this unprecedented time. These include: * Premium rebates worth £110 million to car and van insurance customers in recognition of customers staying at home and driving less during lockdown * Committing an additional £80 million to reducing prices and supporting customers, NHS staff and the local community * Supporting customers who are in financial hardship as a result of the pandemic.  This includes flexibility with customers struggling with monthly payments for insurance and personal loans * All employees are being paid their full salary at this time and no staff are being furloughed under the UK Government funded scheme.  Admiral does not expect to require support from any other initiatives funded by the Government * A £4 million Admiral Support Fund for Covid-19, which is predominantly providing funding and support in South Wales, where Admiral is based, to the NHS, charities, support groups and will also allow the Group to contribute to any insurance industry wide charitable effortDavid Stevens, Group CEO commented: “We find ourselves in extraordinary circumstances, and it has been a very difficult decision to suspend the special dividend as we are aware of the importance and impact to our shareholders and staff.  However, the Board and I believe that this is the prudent and right thing to do at this time.  We thank our customers, staff and shareholders for their continued support, and we remain committed to making decisions that are in their best interests in the long term.”David Stevens has confirmed to Admiral that the normal dividend payable to him and his wife will be donated in full to their charitable foundation to fund support for charities experiencing reduced income and increased needs during the Covid-19 crisis.This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014.The person responsible for the release of the announcement is Mark Waters, Company Secretary.For more information, please contact:Admiral Group plc Marisja Kocznur                                +44 (0) 29 2060 2034 Investors & AnalystsFTI Consulting   Edward Berry                     +44 (0) 20 3727 1046 Tom Blackwell                   +44 (0) 20 3727 1051

    Update on 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM)

    7 April 2020Admiral Group plc (the "Company")Update on 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM)Further to our announcement on 25 March 2020, it is the current intention of the Board to continue to hold the AGM at 2pm on Thursday 30 April 2020 at the Company's registered office of Tŷ Admiral, David Street, Cardiff, CF10 2EH. The UK Government's current guidance on social distancing and prohibition on non-essential travel and public gatherings of more than two people ("Stay at Home measures") will remain in place for at least three weeks from their announcement, after which the Government will review them and consider whether they can be relaxed or whether they will need to continue to operate, as part of an attempt to mitigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Regrettably, unless the current situation changes, it will not be possible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person and so it is necessary to make some adjustments to how this year's AGM is conducted.Consequently, the AGM this year will be purely functional in format to comply with the Company's articles of association, relevant legal requirements and to enable shareholders to vote on the important customary annual business. However, the Board is keen to ensure that shareholders are able to exercise their right to vote and, accordingly, strongly recommends that shareholders vote on all resolutions by completing and submitting a proxy appointment to appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy in accordance with point 1 of the Notes to the Notice of this Meeting  (set out on pages 14 and 15). If a shareholder appoints a person other than the Chair of the meeting as their proxy, that other proxy will not be able to attend the meeting. Where a shareholder has already appointed a person other than the Chair of the meeting as their proxy, such shareholders should submit a new proxy form appointing the Chair of the meeting as their proxy as it is unlikely their original proxy will be able to attend and vote at the meeting due to the Stay at Home measures.Shareholders can submit questions to the Board in advance of the AGM by email to Marisja Kocznur (Head of Investor Relations) (marisja.kocznur@admiralgroup.co.uk) by no later than Friday 24 April 2020. We will consider all questions received and, if appropriate, provide a written response.The health and wellbeing of our employees, shareholders and the wider communities in which we operate is of paramount importance to the Board and the steps set out above are necessary and appropriate ones to take given the current pandemic.The Board continues to closely monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and related guidance issued by the UK Government. We will continue to keep our plans for the AGM under review and recommend that shareholders continue to monitor the Company's website and announcements for any further updates. The Board also urges shareholders to continue to monitor UK Government guidance and directions in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19) and to act accordingly.The Board would like to thank shareholders for their understanding during these unprecedented timesMark Waters                  Company Secretary LEI Number: 213800FGVM7Z9EJB2685
