Fiscal Year End:
Number of Securities in Issue:
As of March 31, 2018, the Company has 113,522,629 common shares issued and outstanding
The dividend policy reflects the Company’s commitment to return a portion of earnings to shareholders, in balance with the inherent variability of its business, which is impacted by the overall condition of debt and equity markets, and the market for securities in specific growth sectors. In the context of this revised policy, the Company expects to return 25% to 50% of net earnings attributable to common shareholders on an annual basis. The policy is anchored by a quarterly dividend of $0.01 per common share, which will be declared and paid quarterly, commencing with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Following the end of each fiscal year, the Board will review the capital position of the business in the context of the market environment in combination with capital allocation requirements for its strategic priorities, and determine whether a supplemental dividend should be paid. Supplemental dividends, if declared, may be highly variable from year to year, given the nature of the Company’s operating environment and the potential need to conserve cash and for certain corporate growth opportunities. Although dividends are expected to be declared and paid on an ongoing basis, the Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, will determine the amount and timing of any dividends. All dividend payments will depend on general business conditions, the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, capital requirements and such other factors as the Board determines to be relevant.
Restrictions on ownership and transfer of common shares
Restrictions on ownership and transfer of common shares in the Articles of CF to prevent unauthorized change in control without regulatory approval, in certain cases, could affect the marketability and liquidity of the common shares.
