Although Engie has suspended its dividend payment in 2020, it is a company whose stock is a popular yield for stock market investors. Engie offers a dividend yield of over 10%, thanks in part to a recent decline in its share price. In this article you will find out everything you need to know about Engie's dividend, its yield, its ex-dividend and payment dates, as well as its history and future dividends.
The current dividend amount proposed by Engie is €0.85 per share. This is the dividend paid to shareholders in 2022 and for the financial year 2021. This was confirmed in April 2022.
Note that the previous year, 2021, Engie paid a dividend of €0.53 per share for the year 2020.
As is the case for most French companies listed on the stock market, with a few exceptions, Engie's dividend is paid once a year.
The payment of this dividend is usually made in April, shortly after the publication of the company's annual results for the previous year.
In 2022, the dividend was detached on 25/04/2022 and paid two days later on 27/04/2022.
Engie recently confirmed its 2022 dividend for the 2021 financial year and this is the next dividend to be paid to shareholders. This amounts to €0.85 per share with a yield of 5.9%.
This dividend has increased significantly since the last payment in 2021, which was only €0.53 per share. It should also be noted that in 2020, no dividend was paid to shareholders due to its suspension in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thus, the dividend that will be paid in 2022 is the largest of the last 5 years and is intended to boost share purchases and thus raise the company's share price and capitalisation.
Of course, Engie has not yet announced the 2023 dividend which will be calculated on the profits of the year 2022. We will have to wait until April 2023 to find out.
Although Engie suspended its dividend in 2020, it had previously paid its shareholders without interruption with an annual dividend since 2005. We therefore propose that you discover here the history of the dividends of this share over the last ten years as well as its rate of change over time.
Historically, Engie's dividend has shown a very rapid increase over the past year with a 220.75% increase. Over the last 5 years, it has also increased rapidly with an average of 14.87% per year. Finally, over the last 10 years, it has risen more slowly with an average annual increase of 1.26%.
The dividend yield of Engie shares is the ratio of the amount of the dividend divided by the share price. The average share price during the period in question is generally taken into account for this calculation. Thus, while the amount of the dividend will influence its yield, the latter is also influenced by the evolution of the Engie share price.
For the last dividend paid by Engie, the 2022 dividend for the year 2021, the yield was 14.93%.
This is a very high yield compared to other companies in the sector. However, it is primarily due to the sharp decline in Engie's share price and not just the increase in the amount paid to shareholders.
Over the last 10 years, the Engie group has paid a dividend with an average yield of 5.98%, which is actually well below the last annual yield of this stock.
