Dividend History

 
 

Although Boustead has no formal dividend policy, we have a tradition of paying dividends linked to long-term net profit growth. Since resuming our annual payment of dividends in FY2003, we have achieved respectable growth in cash dividends over the past fourteen years, with a compounded annual growth rate of 7% over that period.

Our history of annual dividend payments includes:

  • Fifteen consecutive years of dividend payments; and
  • Paying a total of 56.8 cents in cash/scrip dividends over fifteen consecutive years, equivalent to almost 334% of the purchase price of the Boustead share at 17 cents at the beginning of FY2003.
  • Paying a total of 74.9 cents in dividends over fifteen consecutive years, if we factor in the dividends in specie of Boustead Projects’ and EasyCall’s shares.
   
 
   
 

The Board makes an informed decision on proposing the payment of dividends based on its evaluation of:

  • The operating cash requirements of the Group;
  • Acquisition and project investment opportunities; and
  • The global business environment in general.
