NAMA plans a further payment to the Exchequer of €250m by the end of 2021. NAMA will make additional transfers from its projected lifetime surplus of €4.25bn over the coming years. All surplus transfers are subject to market conditions.

Coupled with corporation tax paid of €400m, NAMA’s total dividend to the State from its operations will be of the order of €4.65bn of which €3.4 billion will be paid by end 2021.

Brendan McDonagh, NAMA Chief Executive, said:

“Today’s payment represents just one of a number of cash transfers NAMA continues to make from its lifetime surplus. We expect to have transferred €3.4bn in cash by the end of this year and will make further payments totalling €1.25bn over the coming years. These payments represent a valuable contribution to the State and are enabled by our strong cash position and continued profitability.
