Will Crown Resorts pay a dividend in 2020?

Crown Resorts has paid partially franked, twice yearly dividends every year since listing on the ASX at the end of 2007. The company paid an unfranked interim dividend of 30 cents per share on 17 April 2020. This was deferred from its original payment date of 3 April due to Crown finalising additional financing arrangements following the negative impacts of COVID-19 on its business. The interim dividend was originally intended to be franked to 25%. In an update on 2 April, however Crown announced its decision to issue the payment unfranked in light of the pandemic’s impact. This is the first instance of Crown Resorts paying an unfranked dividend. Typically the company pays its final dividend in early October and, as at 23 June, has made no announcement regarding this payment.  

Does Crown Resorts offer a DRP?

No. As at June 2020, Crown Resorts does not offer a dividend reinvestment plan.
