Dividends

We have a quality portfolio of long life generation assets and confidence in the strength of Contact’s sustainable cash flow generation, which allows for our distribution policy to target a pay out of between 80 and 90% of operating free cash flow as an ordinary dividend, on average over time, once our S&P net debt / EBITDAF ratio is below 2.8x.
