Dividend Declared

On September 20, 2017, Quaker Chemical’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.355 per share, payable on October 31, 2017, to shareholders of record at the close of business on October 17, 2017.

Quaker Chemical’s indicated dividend represents a yield of 0.94%, compared to the average dividend yield of 2.27% for the Basic Materials sector. The Company has raised its dividend for seven consecutive years.

Dividend Insights

Quaker Chemical has a dividend payout ratio of 28.7%, which indicates that the Company distributes approximately $0.29 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, Quaker Chemical is forecasted to report earnings of $5.91 for the next year, which is more than four times the Company’s annualized dividend of $1.42 per share.

Quaker Chemical’s net operating cash flow of $12.5 million in Q2 2017 increased its year-to-date net operating cash flow to $20.8 million, compared to $36.0 million in H1 2016. Overall, the Company’s liquidity and balance sheet remain strong, as its cash position exceeded its debt at June 30, 2017 by $24.2 million and the Company’s total debt continued to be less than one times its trailing twelve month adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA). The Company’s strong financial position indicates its ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain its dividend distribution for a long period.

On September 7, 2017, Quaker Chemical announced the results of its Special Meeting of Shareholders.
