(Alliance News) – abrdn PLC will return an additional GBP400 million to GBP500 million to shareholders before the end of 2022, with cash raised from selling down holdings in other companies, the Financial Times reported on Friday, citing “people with knowledge of the situation”.
The board is discussing the best mechanism for the cash return, and it could be in the form of a special dividend, one person said, according to the newspaper.

Last week, abrdn said wholly owned subsidiary abrdn (Mauritius Holdings) 2006 Ltd sold 43.0 million shares in HDFC Life Insurance Co Ltd, representing 2.0% stake, for around GBP262 million.
“The proceeds will further strengthen the company’s capital resources, supporting investment in the business and enabling the company to continue to return capital in excess of business needs,” abrdn explained at the time.
abrdn is set to be relegated from the FTSE 100 index to the FTSE 250 when the London market reopens on Tuesday, following the quarterly review by index provider FTSE Russell. It has a market capitalisation of GBP3.08 billion.

The Morningstar Star Rating for Stocks is assigned based on an analyst’s estimate of a stocks fair value. It is projection/opinion and not a statement of fact. Morningstar assigns star ratings based on an analyst’s estimate of a stock’s fair value. Four components drive the Star Rating: (1) our assessment of the firm’s economic moat, (2) our estimate of the stock’s fair value, (3) our uncertainty around that fair value estimate and (4) the current market price. This process culminates in a single-point star rating that is updated daily. A 5-star represents a belief that the stock is a good value at its current price; a 1-star stock isn’t. If our base-case assumptions are true the market price will converge on our fair value estimate over time, generally within three years. Investments in securities are subject to market and other risks. Past performance of a security may or may not be sustained in future and is no indication of future performance.
