What is the amount of the dividend paid by L'Oréal?

The last known dividend for L'Oréal shares is the dividend that was paid by this company in 2022 for the financial year 2021. 

In detail, the amount of the L'Oréal share dividend paid in 2022 was €4.80 per share.

It can be seen that this amount has increased significantly compared to the amount paid in 2021. Last year, shareholders received a dividend of only €4 per share for the year 2020.

 

When does L'Oréal pay its dividend?

L'Oréal, like most French listed companies, pays a dividend to its shareholders once a year. Most often, this dividend is paid in April. However, before the dividend can be detached and paid, the L'Oréal Board of Directors must first determine the amount of the dividend and then submit it to a vote of the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.

Thus, the dividend that is paid to shareholders each year is calculated on the basis of the previous year's results. The dividend that was paid in 2022 therefore corresponds to L'Oréal's 2021 financial year. 

The ex-dividend date for the 2022 dividend was 27 April and the payment date was 29 April.

 

What is the next dividend forecast for L'Oréal shares?

It is of course not yet possible to know the amount of the next dividend that will be paid by L'Oréal shares. As mentioned above, the amount of the dividend is decided by the Board of Directors once the annual financial results have been published. However, the group generally publishes its results during the first quarter of each year.

Therefore, we would have to wait until at least the first quarter of 2023 to know the financial results of this company and possibly the amount of its next dividend.
