For additional information about OIL's 2020 financial results, please visit www.oil.bm to view our audited financial statements.
The Company modified the Definition of DNWS in order to minimize the chances future named storms, which originate outside of the Atlantic Basin, become classified as DNWS. A storm's center, instead of just a portion of a storm, now determines if it enters the Atlantic Basin and becomes a DNWS. The change is effective as of March 24th, 2021.
Fabrizio Mastrantonio, Chairman of the Board, explained, "The Board decided to authorize the $380 million dividend after carefully reviewing the company's multi-year Capital Management Plan and while considering future capital needs that may come out of its Strategic Plan which will be finalized in 2021.
" Bertil Olsson, President and CEO commented, "the strong performance in 2020 and the robust capital position of the company has enabled us to once again return a significant amount of capital to our shareholders and demonstrate the superior value of the OIL model."For more information about OIL's property coverages and related value go to www.oil.bm.
