Dividend Policy  

Facebook Google+ WordPress LinkedIn Twitter Blogger Tumblr Email Gmail

A dividend policy spells out how a company will pay out dividends. In establishing its dividend policy, the board of directors has to weight how much should be reinvested in the company and how much should be distributed to its shareholders in the form of dividends. The dividend policy can describe any or all of the following: amount, declaration date, calculation procedures, payment frequency, etc. Typically the dividend policy also states that the board of directors can change the dividend policy as needed. Companies can use SEC Form 8-k to disclose their dividend policy or any amendment to it.
