FAQ

What was CSL's float price?

CSL originally floated in 1994 at $2.30 per share. However, taking into account share buybacks the company has embarked on, the adjusted entry price is equivalent to around 76 cents. Given CSL’s current share price, original shareholders would be very pleased!

Will CSL pay a dividend in 2020?

CSL has paid twice yearly dividends every year since late 1997, a little over three years after the company’s initial listing on the ASX. Up until early 2005, CSL’s dividends were all fully franked. Since then, franking credits have been intermittent with all dividends since 2012 having been unfranked. CSL paid an interim dividend of $1.47 on 9 April 2020 and is scheduled to pay its final dividend early to mid-October.

Does CSL offer a DRP?

CSL has a dividend reinvestment plan however it has not been active since 2004. Instead, CSL periodically executes share buybacks as a way of delivering additional returns for shareholders.
