Dividend Declared

On September 28, 2017, Glatfelter announced that its board of directors declared a $0.13 per share cash dividend on its outstanding common stock. The dividend is payable on November 1, 2017, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 11, 2017.

Dividend Insights

Glatfelter has a dividend payout ratio of 45.2%, which means that the Company distributes approximately $0.45 for every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much amount a company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.

According to analysts’ estimates, Glatfelter is forecasted to report earnings of $1.50 for the next year, which should comfortably cover the Company’s annualized dividend of $0.52 per share.

Glatfelter’s cash and cash equivalents totaled $69.44 million as of June 30, 2017, compared to $55.44 million as of December 31, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, Glatfelter recorded cash flow provided by operating activities of $28.76 million compared to $36.64 million for the year-ago same period. The Company’s strong financial position indicates its ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain the dividend distribution for a long period.
