Investor's Info of March
Excellent 2016 results, dividend per share 11.1% higher
"The excellent results confirm Generali as an industry leader in terms of profitability and performance. These results demonstrate our ability to deliver on our commitments. Operating result and cash generation are the highest ever driven by further improvements in the performance across the whole Group. I’m encouraged by Generali’s progress in last year. We are already seeing the early results of our “Simpler, Smarter. Faster” plan, announced in November 2016. We will build further on these achievements and we have the best possible team to accelerate the execution of our current strategy. We are proud of these results, but we consider them only a first step in a journey to become the best insurance company for clients, distributors, employees and investors and we look to the future with confidence, as an independent, Italian, international Group. In the light of our excellent results and the solid capital position of the Group, we have recommended a dividend of € 0.80 an increase of 11.1% over the previous year."
Philippe Donnet, Generali Group CEO
