Will Credit Corp Group pay a dividend in 2020?
Credit Corp Group has paid twice yearly, fully franked dividends every year since late 2001, the year following its initial listing on the ASX. The company paid an interim dividend of 36 cents per share on 13 March 2020 and typically pays its final dividend between August and November. Due to uncertainty surrounding the impacts of COVID-19 on its business, Credit Corp Group withdrew its FY2020 earnings guidance on 20 March 2020. The company also completed a $120 million capital raising in April 2020 to allow it to continue providing its debt purchasing services through a period of significant downturn. At the time of announcing the capital raising, Credit Corp did not make any specific statements regarding its intention to pay a final dividend. It did, however, highlight that depending on the profitability and liquidity of the business, the Board may, at its discretion, decide to reduce or cease paying dividends from time to time.
Does Credit Corp Group offer a DRP?
