Dividend Declared

On April 17, 2018, Core Laboratories' Board of Supervisory Directors announced a cash dividend of $0.55 per share of common stock payable in the second quarter of 2018. This second quarter dividend would mean a total payout of $2.20 per share of common stock, if maintained for the entire year. The quarterly $0.55 per share cash dividend will be payable on May 22, 2018, to shareholders of record on April 27, 2018.

Core Laboratories' indicated dividend represents a yield of 1.81% compared to the average dividend yield of 2.49% for the Basic Materials sector.

Dividend Insight

Core Laboratories has a dividend payout ratio of 81.5%, which denotes that the Company spends approximately $0.82 for dividend distribution out of 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, Core Laboratories is forecasted to report earnings of $3.52 per share for the next year, which is substantially higher compared to the Company's annualized dividend of $2.20 per share.

During Q4 2017, Core Labs generated $41,400,000 in free cash flow (FCF), which exceeded the amount paid for the Company's quarterly dividend and stock repurchases and allowed Core Laboratories to also reduce its long-term debt. The Company converted over $0.24 of every revenue dollar in Q4 2017 into FCF, the highest reported by all major oil field service companies. 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.
