AA plc Announces Dividend Policy for the Year Ending January 31, 2016

AA plc announced that in view of the strength of the company's business model, characterised by strong cash generation, the confidence in the transformation plans and the impact of the proposed refinancing, the company expects to recommend dividends in respect of the year ending January 31, 2016. The proposed refinancing is anticipated to save the company approximately £45 million in annual financing costs and to provide sufficient headroom with regard to the more restrictive covenants that have to date limited the ability to pay dividends to shareholders. As a result, while further deleveraging is planned, it is the Board's current intention to pay dividends of no less than £50 million with respect to the year ending January 31, 2016. Going forward, the company intend to adopt a progressive dividend policy.

AA Reportedly Mulls Financing

Insiders said that Credit Suisse Group AG (SWX:CSGN), Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) and The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (LSE:RBS) were involved in AA plc refinancing, which could still be delayed until later in the week. A spokesman for AA plc declined to comment. Shares in AA plc closed up 2.3% valuing the company at £2.3 billion.
