Will Charter Hall Retail REIT pay a dividend in 2020?

Because CQR is a trust, rather than a company, its payments to unit holders are known as ‘distributions’ rather than ‘dividends’. Charter Hall Retail REIT paid an interim distribution of 14.52 cents per unit on 28 February 2020. The REIT is scheduled to pay its final distribution for FY20 at the end of August. The trust successfully completed a $275 million institutional placement in April 2020 to strengthen its balance sheet. Whilst the REIT has announced its intention to pay the 2HFY20 distribution, this could be subject to the level of cashflow generated for the period. Charter Hall Retail REIT has paid twice yearly, unfranked distributions to its investors every year dating back to 1996. 

Does Charter Hall Retail REIT offer a DRP?

Yes. Charter Hall Retail REIT offers optional participation in its distribution reinvestment plan. Unit holders residing in Australia and New Zealand can elect either full or partial participation in the plan. The exception to this is unit holders with less than 150 units who, if they wish to participate in the DRP, must agree to full participation.
