Learning Technologies Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 135x. In other words, Learning Technologies Group shares trade at around 135x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Dividend payout ratio: 19.47% of net profits
Recently Learning Technologies Group has paid out, on average, around 19.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Learning Technologies Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Learning Technologies Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.01p per share.
While Learning Technologies Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Learning Technologies Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
