Airbus Group's dividend was suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic that hit the airline industry hard. But fortunately, the company has decided to pay its shareholders again this year with the recovery of air traffic. Here you can find out more about the Airbus share dividend with its current and historical amounts, its yield in 2023 and over the last ten years as well as the dates of its detachment and payment to shareholders and other key information.
The current Airbus Group dividend amount is the dividend that was paid in April 2023 to shareholders based on the company's 2022 results. The amount of this dividend is €1.80 per share.
It should be remembered that the Airbus Group did not pay a dividend in 2020 and 2021 due to the adverse effects that the global pandemic had on its business and results and due to the state aid that it received during this complex period.
The detachment and payment of the Airbus share dividend takes place each year for the previous year's financial year. This means, for example, that the dividend that was paid in 2023 corresponds to the dividend voted by the General Meeting of Shareholders following the announcement by the Board of Directors following the publication of the 2022 results.
As is the case for most French companies, the Airbus dividend is paid on an annual basis, i.e. once a year, usually in April.
In 2023, the ex-dividend date was 25 April 2023 and the payment date was 27 April 2023.
The Airbus group has not yet announced the amount of its next dividend to be paid in 2024 on the 2023 financial year. Indeed, it is necessary to wait for the financial results of the current financial year to determine this dividend.
However, it should be remembered that in 2023, Airbus shareholders received a dividend of €1.80 per share following another increase in results for the 2022 financial year. This dividend was paid in April.
While the Airbus group suspended its dividend for two years in 2020 and 2021, this suspension remains exceptional and is to be attributed to the pandemic that penalised this sector during these two years. Apart from this suspension, the group has always paid a dividend to its shareholders since 2001, i.e. for over 20 years. To better understand, here is a history of the amounts of dividends paid by the group over the last ten years with their year by year evolution.
Despite the two-year suspension of the dividend by Airbus, we can see that the dividend amount for this stock has a tendency to increase over time. Over the last five years, it has increased by an average of 3.71% per year. Over the last ten years, this increase has been on average 11.61% per year.
The Airbus dividend yield tells us how profitable the share is for the shareholders who own it. It is calculated by dividing the amount of the dividend by the share price. It is therefore not only the amount of the dividend that should be taken into account in order to know and appreciate the yield of this share on the stock market.
The dividend paid by Airbus in 2023 and for the financial year 2022 thus shows a yield of 1.43%.
Currently, the payout ratio of the Airbus group is estimated at 28.5%. This ratio corresponds to the share of profits paid out to shareholders by the company and is relatively consistent as it shows that the group retains part of its cash flow to stimulate growth and make investments.
Over the last 10 years, Airbus Group has paid a dividend with an average yield of 1.72%, which is slightly above its 2023 yield. Here is its history:
