The Cochlear dividend is being paid today. Here’s what you need to know
The medical devices company has an impressive dividend payment history dating back to 1997 and typically pays twice-yearly fully franked dividends in April and October.
However, Cochlear paid only a single interim dividend of $1.60 in 2020 after COVID-19 negatively impacted its revenue streams. In March 2020, the company withdrew its FY20 earnings guidance, announced a capital raising to enhance liquidity and suspended the company’s dividend until trading conditions improved.
In 2021, Cochlear has returned to making bi-annual dividend payments but both come 100% unfranked. Cochlear paid an interim dividend of $1.15 per share on 20 April 2021, and a final dividend of $1.40 will follow on 18 October 2021.
As at 8 October 2021, Cochlear does not offer a dividend reinvestment plan.
