Two comments from Hardman I particularly like:

"Chesnara is ready for further M&A" - yes and to be honest I'm surprised we haven't seen more from the new management

"the yield appears high for a dividend that is both secure and growing" - it was always thus and this remains the most attractive aspect of the stock, but don't expect the rating to change. If central banks cut rates through 2024 we may see a minor benefit

He interviews well. All sounds great and very reassuring... Looks like we got lucky raising cash for acquisitions on good terms just before interest rates shot up!

Thanks Mirandaj. All sounds very positive. Just what I've come to expect from Chesnara.

Steve Murray gives his take on the highlights from the year, highlighting it being the 18th consecutive year of dividend growth, before casting his eye forward to the rest of 2023:

Thanks speedsgh. We actually got above 300 for a short while.

Yes thanks for that. I wonder of the recent market volatility makes it more or less likely that they will find acquisitions at attractive prices?

Six months of chaotic bond markets has slapped a cheaper price tag on insurers. In the wake of the latest upheaval caused by recent banking failures, shares in Chesnara trade at a 19 per cent discount to the group’s economic value, a measure of net assets and future cashflow set to be generated by the business.

Yet annual trading figures underline why the closed-book consolidator can withstand a short-term fall in investment returns and crucially, maintain generous dividends. Another 3 per cent rise in the dividend to 23.28p a share extends its record of consecutive dividend increases to 18 years. At the present price, the shares offer a dividend yield of 8.1 per cent.

How sustainable is that? Without completing more acquisitions, the existing business is expected to throw off about £300 million in cash over the next five years. That would easily cover the £239 million cost of increasing the dividend by roughly 3 per cent each year plus servicing its debt. Last year alone, cash generated by the group’s British, Dutch and Swedish businesses was £61.9 million, almost twice the £34 million cost of the annual dividend.

On one hand, falling equity markets last year meant lower fees earned on policy investments by Chesnara — not good over an extended period. On the other, a sharp decline in stock markets also reduces the level of capital that Chesnara has to hold, as the risk of a further heavy decline diminishes, pushing up cash generation in the short term. That is one reason that, from a regulatory capital position, Chesnara is in solid form. The Solvency II ratio is 182 per cent even after acquisitions, a way above the target range of 140 per cent to 160 per cent.

For a closed-book insurance company such as Chesnara, dealmaking is crucial to replace the cash generated by pools of policies as they mature. Three acquisitions have been completed since the start of last year, which should generate annual cash of £10 million. There is about £100 million left for more bolt-on deals, after maintaining between £40 million and £50 million on the balance sheet. It is enough to keep investors secure in dividend prospects.

I've got complete faith in the financials and taking the opportunity to load up on CSN, PHNX, AV, MNG, LGEN and ABDN whilst they're still "apparently" very cheap.

Somebody’s had a closer look at the results. Stock in demand today. I might yet see my 300 again.

I was a little worried about the acquisition strategy affecting the dividend, but the number of times they speak about the "18 years of continued dividend growth" in the report, it seems I have nothing to worry about. Looks like dividends remain a priority.

Results had exactly the effect on the market as I would have expected, pretty much none.

Happy our new leader isn't rushing in to things, Chesnanra seems to still be plodding along as it always has.

Well under the radar, a solid great value share which is a nice inclusion in one's portfolio.

A solid income stock. Another dividend increase. What’s not to like in these numbers? This is one of those companies that never cause you to lose sleep. One day we might even see the share price back over £3.00.

For the dividend chasers amongst us:

The recommended final dividend of 15.16p per share is expected to be paid on 26 May 2023. The ordinary shares will be quoted ex-dividend on the London Stock Exchange as of 6 April 2023. The record date for eligibility for payment will be 11 April 2023.

CASH GENERATION AND DIVIDS - 18 YEARS OF DIVID GROWTH
The results during the year, combined with the group's balance sheet strength, support a further year of dividend growth. The Board has proposed a 2022 final dividend of 15.16p per share (2022 total dividend of 23.28p), which is a 3% increase compared to 2021 and extends the period of uninterrupted dividend growth to 18 years.

That's what the chart above shows. That 200 day moving average red line hasn't been over £3 since the beginning of 2020

That will be the day Mirandaj. This share price does not rise but it does fluctuate. I have been buying under 280 and selling over 300 for years. Good (and rising) dividends, but don't hold your breath for capital growth.
