Chesnara has announced its 2023 interim results. Good returns in equity markets, most notably in Sweden, and the benefit from acquisitions meant earnings were well ahead of our normalised estimates. Economic Value profit was £61.0m, including £28.4m from acquisitions, compared with a loss of £75.7m in 1H’22. Despite paying the final dividend, Economic Value increased 2% over the half year to £523.2m. Cash generation was solid, with commercial cash generation of £21.8m, while base cash generation was lower after the symmetric adjustment at £11.1m. As expected, the interim dividend was increased by 3% to 8.36p per share.
