Crédit Agricole has recently optimised its distribution policy by increasing the amount of its dividend for shareholders, particularly following a net recovery in its activities. In this article, we offer you to learn more about the Crédit Agricole share dividend, its precise amount and payment date, as well as information about its yield and its history over the last ten years.
The Crédit Agricole Group paid a dividend of €1.05 per share in 2023 for the financial year 2022.
The company had previously paid an equivalent dividend of €1.05 per share in 2022 and in respect of the 2021 financial year.
The detachment and payment of the dividend on Crédit Agricole shares takes place each year after the publication of the previous year's annual results. The amount of the dividend is then decided by the Board of Directors and voted on by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.
Crédit Agricole pays its dividend annually, usually in June with an ex-dividend date in May.
In 2023, the detachment date was 30 May and the dividend was paid on 1 June 2023.
The next dividend to be paid to holders of Crédit Agricole shares is the 2024 dividend, calculated on the basis of the 2023 financial year.
The amount of this dividend has not yet been announced and will be calculated at the beginning of 2024 based on the results obtained by the Group in 2023. It will then be submitted to a vote of the shareholders at the annual general meeting before being published.
It will therefore be necessary to wait until the first quarter of 2024 to know the amount and the dates of detachment and payment of this dividend.
Crédit Agricole generally pays a dividend each year to its shareholders.
