FAQ

Will Fletcher Building pay a dividend in 2020?

Up until the first half of 2020, Fletcher Building has been paying twice yearly dividends every year since it listed on the ASX in 2001. The company has paid three fully franked dividends during this time with the remainder of its payments being unfranked.

Fletcher Building was scheduled to pay an interim dividend of 8.97 cents per share on 9 April 2020 however, in an announcement released on 25 March, this payment was cancelled due to the impacts of COVID-19 restrictions. Also included in the announcement was advice that the company would be suspending its on-market share buyback program and withdrawing its FY20 EBIT guidance. Since then, Fletcher Building has made cuts to its capital expenditure and also achieved amendments to its banking agreements in an effort to shore up the balance sheet. The company is yet to announce whether a final dividend is to be paid and will release its full year results for FY2020 on 19 August.

Does Fletcher Building offer a DRP?

Yes. Fletcher Building offers shareholders residing in Australia and New Zealand the option of either full or partial participation in its dividend reinvestment plan. The Fletcher Building Board may, at any time, determine that the DRP will not apply to a particular dividend payment by making an announcement to the market.
