What is the amount of the dividend paid by Engie?

The current dividend amount proposed by Engie is €1.40 per share. This is the dividend paid to shareholders in 2023 and for the financial year 2022. This was confirmed in April 2023.

Note that the previous year, 2022, Engie paid a dividend of €0.85 per share for the year 2021.


When does Engie pay its dividend?

As is the case for most French companies listed on the stock exchange, 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 2023, the dividend was detached on 28/04/2023 and paid two days later on 03/05/2023.


What is the next dividend forecast for Engie shares?

Engie recently confirmed its 2023 dividend for the 2022 financial year and this is the next dividend to be paid to shareholders. This amounts to €1.40 per share with a yield of 9.28%.

This dividend has increased significantly since the last payment in 2022, which was only €0.85 per share. 

Thus, the dividend to be paid in 2023 is the largest of the last 5 years and is intended to boost share purchases and thus increase the company's share price and capitalisation.

Of course, Engie has not yet announced the 2024 dividend which will be calculated on the profits of the year 2023. We will have to wait until April 2024 to find out.
