Global Indemnity Group pays more than it earns

Impressive dividend yields are good, but it doesn’t matter much if the payouts can’t be sustained. Prior to this announcement, Global Indemnity Group’s dividend exceeded earnings, but free cash flow covered it quite comfortably. Healthy cash flows are always a positive sign, especially when they easily cover the dividend.

EPS is expected to drop 30.8% over the next 12 months if recent trends continue. If the dividend continues according to recent trends, we estimate that the payout ratio could reach 488%, which could put the dividend at risk if the company’s earnings do not improve.

Global Indemnity Group continues to build its track record

Looking back, the dividend has been stable, but the company has not paid a dividend for a very long time, so we cannot be sure that the dividend will remain stable in all economic environments. Payments haven’t really changed much in 4 years. It’s good to see modest dividend growth, especially with relatively stable payouts. However, the payment history is relatively short and we wouldn’t want to rely too much on this dividend.

The dividend has limited growth potential

Some investors will be eager to buy a portion of the company’s stock based on its dividend history. However, initial appearances can be deceptive. Over the past five years, it appears that Global Indemnity Group’s EPS has declined by around 31% per year. Dividend payments are likely to come under some pressure unless EPS can get out of the slump it is in.

Global Indemnity Group dividend does not appear sustainable

In summary, while it is good to see that the dividend has not been reduced, we are a little cautious about the payments from Global Indemnity Group, as there could be issues maintaining them in the future. Payments haven’t been particularly stable and we don’t see huge growth potential, but with the dividend well covered by cash flow, it could prove to be reliable in the short term. This company is not in the top bracket of income providing stocks.
