Dividend Coverage

Over the last twelve months (prior to October 31, 2016), PVH-US paid a high quality dividend.

The source of the company’s cash to support the dividend paid over the last twelve months is operating cash flow (coverage of 89.17x), investing cash flow (coverage of -37.33x), issuance cash flow (coverage of -24.73x) and twelve-month prior cash (coverage of 30.32x), for a total dividend coverage of 55.30x.

PVH-US‘s issuance cash flow includes outflows from net debt repayment (coverage of -2.98x) and net share buybacks (coverage of -21.86x). Thus, the total coverage including share buybacks is 77.16x, which reflects our assumption that the cash paid for share buybacks is discretionary and could instead be used to pay dividends.

Dividend Coverage by Cash Flow (TTM)

These coverage ratio factors imply that the firm’s dividends are wholly paid from operating and investing cash flows net of any debt repayments, which suggests a high dividend quality.
