DIVIDEND POLICY

Lancashire intends to maintain a strong balance sheet at all times, while generating an attractive risk-adjusted total return for shareholders we will actively manage capital to achieve those aims. Capital management is expected to include the payment of a sustainable annual dividend, supplemented by special dividends from time to time. Dividends will be linked to past performance and future prospects. Under most scenarios, the annual dividend is not expected to reduce from one year to the next. Special dividends are expected to vary substantially in size and in timing.
