Dividends and Securities Info



We have a consistent track record of delivering annual dividend increases, and our continuing goal is to deliver superior shareholder returns through capital appreciation and dividends.

Enbridge has paid dividends for over 64 years to its shareholders. In January 2017, we announced a 10% increase to our dividend per share, increasing the quarterly dividend to $0.583. In May 2017, we further increased the quarterly dividend to $0.61 representing an aggregate increase in the quarterly dividend to 15% above the prevailing quarterly rate in 2016. This translates into $2.413 dividend per share on an annualized basis for 2017. Over the past 20 years, the dividend has grown at an average compound annual growth rate of 11.2%.

20 Year Dividend Growth

Equally important, our dividend growth has not come at the expense of our financial strength as Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations (‘ACFFO’) coverage of our dividend remained very strong in 2016, at approximately two times. Furthermore, we expect that our highly transparent growth outlook will translate into annual dividend growth of 10% – 12% through 2024 based on the strength of our $31-billion commercially secured growth capital program in execution, along with our $48-billion of risk-weighted projects in development.

Dividend-share-outlook

Enbridge’s target dividend payout is between 50 to 60 percent of ACFFO, providing a healthy balance between returning income to shareholders and retaining income for reinvestment in new growth opportunities.
