Over the last twelve months (prior to June 30, 2017), STND-US paid a medium 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 2.07x), investing cash flow (coverage of -16.60x), issuance cash flow (coverage of 18.17x) and twelve-month prior cash (coverage of 1.35x), for a total dividend coverage of 4.73x.
These coverage ratio factors imply that the firm’s net cash inflow from issuance was required (in addition to operating and investment cash) to pay the dividend, which suggests a medium dividend quality.
