Will Cochlear pay a dividend in 2020?

Cochlear typically pays twice yearly dividends in April and October. Over the past five years, the company’s dividends have all been fully franked. Prior to this, Cochlear’s dividends varied between fully franked and partially franked with only one dividend over this time being 100% unfranked. Cochlear’s last interim dividend of $1.60 per share was paid on 17 April 2020. The medical devices company has an impressive dividend payment history dating back to 1997. In March 2020, however, Cochlear withdrew its FY20 earnings guidance and announced a capital raising to enhance its liquidity. This was following the negative impacts of COVID-19 on its revenue streams. It also announced suspension of the company’s dividend until trading conditions improve. 

Does Cochlear offer a DRP?

At at 17 June 2020, Cochlear does not offer a dividend reinvestment plan.
