IIRC the new discount rate originally proposed in Feb 2017 was -0.75%. DLG previously disclosed in its 2015 Annual Report that its claims liabilities, at that time, were calculated using a discount rate of 1.5%. So 0-1% is somewhat of an improvement on -0.75%, hence today's jump. The fact that the proposed law will not operate retrospectively is also +ve.

hopefully everyone invested yesterday! Personal injury compensation reforms announced The Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary, David Lidington MP, will later today lay draft legislation before Parliament to change the way in which the personal injury discount rate is set. If enacted, the draft legislation will change the way in which the personal injury discount rate prescribed under section 1 of the Damages Act 1996 is set. Based on the evidence currently available the Government would expect that if a single rate were set today under the new approach the real rate might fall within the range of 0% to 1%, but the new framework will only apply if the proposed law is enacted and will not operate retrospectively. Further details of the reforms will be set out later today on the gov.uk website” A WMS will be made later this morning.

Yes, me too, carer, very pleased with that after holding from the IPO. The share price often spikes dramatically on good news, so I'll be looking to get back in before the end of the year.

Dividends declared since IPO 137.3p vs 175p IPO price = 78%. On current projections dividends will probably exceed IPO price by May-19. I haven't reinvested dividends in DLG for 18 months but CAGR total return still about 26% in 4.75 years since IPO.

what a fantastic set of results - no company in the ftse is better run - basic divi are now circa 21p this is without the discount rate changing - expect it to be revised upwards this week

gsbmba99 - Indeed. From 2016 Final Results released on 7/3/17... Preliminary Results year ended 31 December 2016 - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/direct-line-ins-grp--dlg-/rns/preliminary-results-year-ended-31-december-2016/201703070700116797Y/ In future, the Board has decided that, in the normal course of events, it will consider whether or not it is appropriate to pay a special dividend only once a year, alongside the full year results. In doing this, the Group will harmonise its major capital management decisions with its planning process and its full-year earnings.

From memory, I believe they said last year that, going forward, they would only assess ability to pay a special once a year at the time of final results publication. So, an interim special is unlikely.
