The Board reviews and determines the dividend rate quarterly after considering expected commodity prices, foreign exchange rates, economic conditions, production volumes, DRIP participation levels, tax payable, and our capacity to finance operating and investing obligations. The dividend rate is established with the intent of absorbing short-term market volatility over several months. It also recognizes our intention to fund capital expenditures primarily through funds generated from operations and to maintain a strong balance sheet to take advantage of acquisition opportunities and withstand potential commodity price declines.
Record dates for regular monthly dividends are the end of each month, and payment dates are approximately the 15th day of the following month.
The regular monthly dividend is currently fixed at $0.04 per share.
