CSL Limited (ASX: CSL) shareholders will have something to cheer about today as the company improved the dividend amount to be paid out.
In CSL’s full-year results, the board declared a partially franked final dividend of US$1.18 per share.
While the amount was kept the same as the prior corresponding period, it is the equal-highest dividend announced.
Nonetheless, the CSL share price tanked to a low of $278.89 on the day as investors vented their frustration with the company’s outlook.
Today, however, shares in the biotherapeutics giant have recovered to last trade at $299.61 apiece.
Let’s take a look in more detail at exactly how much CSL will pay out to shareholders.
If you decided to buy CSL shares and hold them before they went ex-dividend on 6 September, you’ll be eligible for the upcoming dividend.
Previously, CSL notified the market that the US$1.18 dividend would be roughly equivalent to A$1.68 per share.
However, with the exchange rate fluctuating in favour of the Australian dollar against the greenback, you’ll receive a little more than expected.
In its release this morning, CSL provided an update in regards to the equivalent amount stating shareholders will now receive $1.758 per share.
While it may not seem like a great deal, as it’s around 7 cents higher, this could mean a couple of hundred dollars for investors with a large holding.
CSL is scheduled to distribute the dividend payment to shareholder accounts on 5 October.
With CSL shares notching up 7.5% since the FY 2022 results, investor momentum appears to be growing.
Currently, the company’s share price is around 13% lower than its previous all-time high of $342.75 (20 February 2020).
CSL has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 41.67 and a market capitalisation of $144.45 billion.
