All financial figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted
CALGARY, AB, Feb. 21, 2023 /CNW/ – Gibson Energy Inc. announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly dividend of $0.39 per common share, an increase of $0.02 per common share, which will be payable on April 17, 2023, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 31, 2023. This dividend is designated as an eligible dividend for Canadian income tax purposes. For non-resident shareholders, Gibson’s dividends are subject to Canadian withholding tax.
“With the continued growth of our long-term, stable cash flows from our Infrastructure segment as well as our distributable cash flow per share, which have both roughly doubled over the past five years, we are pleased to continue the consistent, annual growth of our dividend,” said Steve Spaulding, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The increase reflects our continued adherence to our stated capital allocation approach, resulting in the buyback of over 4% of outstanding shares in 2022, as well as our Financial Governing Principles which include our focus on Infrastructure-only payout and leverage metrics that do not rely on the variable part of our business. When combined with our intention to repurchase up to $100 million in common shares in 2023, we see the potential to provide a return of capital of nearly 10% per share during the year.”
