Payment history for AGL dividends
AGL targets a payout ratio of approximately 75% of Underlying Profit after tax where a minimum franking level of 80% can be maintained.
Before declaring each dividend the AGL Board ensures:
- AGL’s assets exceeded its liabilities immediately before declaring the dividend and the excess was sufficient for the payment of the dividend;
- the payment of the dividend was fair and reasonable to AGL’s shareholders as a whole; and
- the payment of the dividend would not materially prejudice AGL’s ability to pay its creditors.
Moving forward from the FY24 interim dividend, AGL will be targeting a payout ratio of 50 to 75 percent of Underlying Profit after tax, which will be franked to the extent possible.
As announced on 10 August 2023, the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) has been suspended indefinitely and will not operate for the final FY23 dividend.
Dividends remain subject to Board discretion, trading conditions and the ongoing funding and liquidity requirements of the business.
AGL ordinarily pays a dividend in March and September. The dividend dates for 2023 can be found here.
