Although the Stellantis Group suffered many negative financial consequences with the Covid pandemic, like most other companies in the industry, it only suspended its dividend for one year in 2020. Since then, the company has resumed paying its dividend again and has even announced an increased amount in 2022. On this page, you will find out everything you need to know about Stellantis' share dividend, its amount, its yield as well as its recent history and its ex-dividend and payment dates.
The last dividend paid by the Stellantis Group was the 2021 dividend for the financial year 2020. The amount of this dividend was €0.32 per share.
Furthermore, the Stellantis Group has already voted the amount of its next dividend, which concerns the financial year 2021 and will then be paid in 2022. The amount of this new dividend has been increased by the group to a total of €1.04 per share.
Each year, Stellantis votes on the amount of its dividend at the General Meeting of Shareholders.
Each year, the Board of Directors of the Stellantis Group determines the amount and dates of payment of the dividend following the results of the previous year.
Stellantis' dividend payment schedule is annual. This means that, apart from exceptional payments, the company pays its shareholders once a year.
In 2022, the ex-dividend date is 19 April and the payment date is 29 April. It is usually in April that this dividend is paid after validation by the annual general meeting of shareholders.
Stellantis recently announced its 2022 dividend, which corresponds to the dividend for the 2021 financial year. This appears to have risen sharply to €1.04 per share, compared with only €0.32 per share in 2021 for the 2020 financial year.
Remember that in 2021, Stellantis shareholders received a total dividend of €0.32 per share, which is of course well below the dividend that was paid in April 2022.
This very strong increase in the Stellantis dividend can be explained in different ways but mainly by the above expectation results of the financial year 2021. Indeed, following the Stellantis Board meeting, management indicated its intention to recommend a distribution to shareholders of all profits made in that year, which represents more than 3.3 billion euros or 3.7 billion US dollars.
To understand the history of Stellantis' dividend payments, let's first recall that this company has only been listed on the stock exchange under this name since 2019. This is because the merger between the PSA group and Fiat Chrysler took place on that date, giving rise to this new company. Thus, the history of this company's dividend is relatively recent. However, we now propose that you discover this history with the amount of the last dividends paid by Stellantis as well as their evolution from one year to the next.
Although we have little information about the evolution of the company's dividend over time, we can see that it has grown very quickly this year, with an impressive 225% increase. The more negative evolution over the last three years is not to be interpreted on its own, as it is of course the result of the negative effects that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the financial results of most of the companies in the automotive sector.
Before revealing the dividend yield paid by Stellantis, let's take the time to remind you that it is this yield that accounts for the profitability of this share and not the amount of the dividend alone. In fact, to calculate the dividend yield, we must take into account both the amount of the dividend and the stock market price of the share. The amount of the dividend is divided by the share price.
The dividend paid by Stellantis in 2022 and for the financial year 2021 thus shows a yield of 7.39%.
Since Stellantis has decided to pay out all its profits to its shareholders in 2022 for the financial year 2021, its Payout Ratio reaches 100% this year. Of course, this was not the case previously as the payout ratio for the year 2021 was only 2.1%. However, this extremely high rate cannot be implemented every year and represents an exceptional decision. Indeed, Stellantis needs to retain a portion of its income to make investments and support its growth.
Over the past 4 years, Stellantis Group has paid a dividend with an average yield of 11.57%, which is above its 2022 yield. Here is its history:
