CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gibson Energy Inc. announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly dividend of $0.35 per common share, an increase of $0.01 per common share, which will be payable on April 16, 2021, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 31, 2021. 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.
“Despite the challenging environment over the past year, we grew our long-term, stable cash flows from our Infrastructure segment by nearly 20 percent on a year over year comparable basis,” said Steve Spaulding, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our Infrastructure business also demonstrated its resilience through 2020, which gives us additional confidence to continue growing our dividend without compromising our strong financial position and adherence to our Financial Governing Principles. In particular, this would include not relying on the variable part of our business to remain fully-funded for all anticipated capital growth as well as both our dividends and leverage being fully underpinned by ratable, highly-contracted cash flows from our Infrastructure segment.”
