Shell's full year profit falls 8% but oil giant maintains dividend Oil giant's fourth quarter profits misses expectations on $500m worth of impairment costs. Dan Cancian By Dan Cancian February 2, 2017 08:24 GMT shell garage Shell maintained its total dividend for the full year.iStock Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell's annual profit fell almost 10%, while its fourth quarter profit missed analysts' forecast, after the company booked $500m (£394.5m) worth of impairment costs related to a deferred tax reassessments. In the final three months of its financial year, the FTSE 100-listed group reported a 14% year-on-year increase in profits adjusted for one-time items and inventory changes advanced to $1.8bn, falling short of the expected $2.8bn figure. More business news Deutsche Börse CEO under investigation over €4.5m share purchase before LSE merger Fed leaves key rate unchanged in first meeting since Trump's inauguration Trump orders Big Pharma to 'cut astronomical drug prices, move back to US' Why advertise with us Despite the lower-than-expected fourth quarter profit, however, the company maintained its total dividend for the full year unchanged at 1.88 cents per share. Europe's largest oil company reported current cost of supply (CSS) earnings, its preferred way of measuring profit, of $3.53bn for the whole of 2016, 8% lower year-on-year, while excluding exceptional items, CCS earnings in 2016 fell 37% from the previous year to $7.18bn. Production in the fourth quarter, however, rose 28% year-on-year to 3.91 million barrels of oil equivalent a day (bpd). On an annual basis, oil and gas production averaged 3.7 million bpd, rising 24% year-on-year, boosted by the performance of BG Group, which the Anglo-Dutch company purchased in February last year. Excluding the newly-acquired company, however, production declined 2% from 2015, the group said. Shell's upstream unit producing oil and gas reported a CCS loss of $2.70bn, compared with a $2.25bn loss last year, while the downstream unit saw earnings fall to $7.24bn from $9.74bn. Meanwhile, income attributable to shareholders more than doubled last year, jumping from $1.93bn to $4.57bn Cashflow from operations beat analyst expectations, but declined to $20.61bn from $29.81bn. Group chief executive Ben van Beurden said the company was in the process of reshaping its strategy, adding he remained confident over the group's outlook. "Debt has been reduced and, for the second consecutive quarter, free cash flow more than covered our cash dividend," he said. "Looking ahead, we will further focus the portfolio and strengthen the company's financial framework in 2017. Our strategy is starting to pay off and in 2017 we will be investing around $25bn in high quality, resilient projects. I'm confident 2017 will be another year of progress for Shell to become a world-class investment." Earlier this week, Shell agreed to offload holdings in 10 North Sea oil fields in a deal worth up to £3.1bn. The oil major said it will sell its interests in Buzzard, Beryl, Bressay, Elgin-Franklin, J-Block, the Greater Armada cluster, Everest, Lomond, Schiehallion and Erskine transferring them to UK independent explorer Chrysaor. The move is part of Shell steamlining its worldwide assets after it completed its £50bn purchase of BG last February. The deal greatly expands Shell's presence in the gas markets, lessening its reliance on oil production, which has seen prices fall by more than half over the last three years to around $55 per barrel for Brent Crude.

Royal Dutch Shell Shell Fourth Quarter 2016 Interim Dividend 02/02/2017 7:06am UK Regulatory (RNS & others) TIDMRDSA TIDMRDSB ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC FOURTH QUARTER 2016 INTERIM DIVID The Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc ("RDS") today announced an interim dividend in respect of the fourth quarter of 2016 of US$0.47 per A ordinary share ("A Share") and B ordinary share ("B Share"), equal to the US dollar dividend for the same quarter last year. The Board expects that the first quarter 2017 interim dividend will be US$0.47, equal to the US dollar dividend for the same quarter in the previous year. The first quarter 2017 interim dividend is scheduled to be announced on May 4, 2017. RDS provides eligible shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via a Scrip Dividend Programme ("the Programme"). For further details please see below. Details relating to the fourth quarter 2016 interim dividend It is expected that cash dividends on the B Shares will be paid via the Dividend Access Mechanism from UK-sourced income of the Shell Group. Per ordinary share Q4 2016 RDS A Shares (US$) 0.47 RDS B Shares (US$) 0.47 Cash dividends on A Shares will be paid, by default, in euro, although holders of A Shares will be able to elect to receive dividends in pounds sterling. Cash dividends on B Shares will be paid, by default, in pounds sterling, although holders of B Shares will be able to elect to receive dividends in euro. The pounds sterling and euro equivalent dividend payments will be announced on March 10, 2017. Per ADS Q4 2016 RDS A ADSs (US$) 0.94 RDS B ADSs (US$) 0.94 Cash dividends on American Depository Shares ("ADSs") will be paid, by default, in US dollars. ADS stands for an American Depositary Share. ADR stands for an American Depositary Receipt. An ADR is a certificate that evidences ADSs. ADSs are listed on the NYSE under the symbols RDS.A and RDS.B. Each ADS represents two ordinary shares, two A Shares in the case of RDS.A or two B Shares in the case of RDS.B. In many cases the terms ADR and ADS are used interchangeably. Scrip Dividend Programme RDS provides shareholders with a choice to receive dividends in cash or in shares via the Programme. Under the Programme shareholders can increase their shareholding in RDS by choosing to receive new shares instead of cash dividends, if approved by the Board. Only new A Shares will be issued under the Programme, including to shareholders who currently hold B Shares. In some countries, joining the Programme may currently offer a tax advantage compared with receiving cash dividends. In particular, dividends paid out as shares by the Company will not be subject to Dutch dividend withholding tax (currently 15 per cent), unlike cash dividends paid on A shares, and they will not generally be taxed on receipt by a UK shareholder or a Dutch shareholder. Shareholders who elect to join the Programme will increase the number of shares held in RDS without having to buy existing shares in the market, thereby avoiding associated dealing costs. Shareholders who do not join the Programme will continue to receive in cash any dividends approved by the Board. Shareholders who held only B Shares and joined the Programme are reminded they will need to make a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of their new A Shares if they wish to join the Programme in respect of such new shares. However, this is only necessary if the shareholder has not previously made a Scrip Dividend Election in respect of any new A Shares issued. For further information on the Programme, including how to join if you are eligible, please refer to the appropriate publication available on www.shell.com/scrip. Dividend timetable for the fourth quarter 2016 interim dividend Announcement date February 2, 2017 Ex-dividend date RDS A and RDS B ADSs February 15, 2017 Ex-dividend date RDS A and RDS B shares February 16, 2017 Record date February 17, 2017 Scrip reference share price announcement February 23, 2017 date Closing of scrip election and currency March 3, 2017 election (See Note) Pounds sterling and euro equivalents March 10, 2017 announcement date Payment date March 27, 2017 Note Both a different scrip and currency election date may apply to shareholders holding shares in a securities account with a bank or financial institution ultimately holding through Euroclear Nederland. This may also apply to other shareholders who do not hold their shares either directly on the Register of Members or in the corporate sponsored nominee arrangement. Shareholders can contact their broker, financial intermediary, bank or financial institution for the election deadline that applies. A different scrip election date may apply to registered and non-registered ADS holders. Registered ADS holders can contact The Bank of New York Mellon for the election deadline that applies. Non-registered ADS holders can contact their broker, financial intermediary, bank or financial institution for the election deadline that applies. Taxation - cash dividends Cash dividends on A Shares will be subject to the deduction of Dutch dividend withholding tax at the rate of 15%, which may be reduced in certain circumstances. Based on a policy statement issued by the Dutch Ministry of Finance on April 29, 2016 (which has been formalised in law with effect from January 2017), and depending on their particular circumstances, non-Dutch resident shareholders may be entitled to a full or partial refund of Dutch dividend withholding tax. Furthermore, in April 2016, there were changes to the UK taxation of dividends. The dividend tax credit has been abolished, and a new tax free dividend allowance of GBP5,000 introduced. Dividend income in excess of the allowance will be taxable at the following rates: 7.5% within the basic rate band; 32.5% within the higher rate band; and 38.1% on dividend income taxable at the additional rate. If you are uncertain as to the tax treatment of any dividends you should consult your own tax advisor.

Big Oil May Not Need To Borrow To Pay Dividends For The First Time In 5 Years By Tsvetana Paraskova - Jan 26, 2017, 5:07 PM CST Offshore rig The hefty cost cuts that the supermajors have made over the past two years, combined with relatively stable oil prices that are now over $50, could mean that Big Oil may not have to resort to borrowing in order to pay the sacred dividends for the first time in five years, Bloomberg reports, quoting analysts at brokerage Jefferies International. The slashed costs – including sweeping job cuts – and the canceling and delaying of highly capital-intensive projects have helped the world’s five biggest oil companies to stop bleeding cash and return to generating cash flows. “As a group they are at peak debt levels now,” Jason Gammel, a London-based analyst at Jefferies, told Bloomberg, referring to operating and capital efficiency at ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, Total SA, and BP. Ads by Since the oil prices started crashing in 2014, supermajors had amassed more and more debt. As of the middle of last year, Big Oil’s debts were rising, cash flows dropping, and capex diminishing, but dividends firmly held. Now it looks like the tide is slowly turning, thanks to higher oil prices, leaner operations, and cost cuts. Related: Robots Over Roughnecks: Next Drilling Boom Might Not Add Many Jobs Jefferies has estimated that when oil prices were around US$100 per barrel in 2014, the Big Five had generated a combined US$180 billion in cash from operations. In 2016, the total cash from operations had plunged to US$83 billion. But higher oil prices are expected to help the now ‘leaner and meaner’ oil majors to generate US$142 billion from operations this year, and US$176 billion next year, according to Jefferies. In the next two weeks, the Big Five will report fourth-quarter figures, and analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg point to Exxon, Chevron and BP booking their first annual profit rises since 2014. More specifically, Chevron is projected to return to profit; Exxon is expected to book a 5.8-percent increase in income; Shell is seen reporting increased profit for a second quarter in a row; BP is likely to post higher adjusted earnings for the first time in nine successive quarters; and Total is seen posting a 4.3-percent increase in adjusted net income.

Anyone that can tolerate a bit of risk in the hunt for yield might want to look at SIV. Two brokers seem to have updated, after last week's notification of contract delays into Q4, that the 7.8p dividend will be held, which makes the yield about 10.7%. Tread warily.

Utilities | Fri Dec 16, 2016 | 7:30am EST Total cuts scrip dividend discount on improved outlook * Total's shares among top gainers in Paris * Analyst says expect Total to move away from scrip soon * Total cancels treasury shares, no financial impact PARIS, Dec 16 French oil and gas company Total on Friday cut the discount offered for its shares in a scrip dividend scheme for the second quarter to 5 percent from 10 percent citing improved confidence in its outlook and rising oil prices. Oil companies have used the scrip dividend programme to maintain rather than cut dividends due to the prolonged fall in oil prices in a global glut. PUBLICITÉ inRead invented by Teads Prices have rebounded from lows hit earlier this year after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries agreed to cut output by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) from Jan. 1, its first such deal since 2008. Russia and other non-OPEC producers plan to cut about half as much. Brent crude futures were trading at $54.27 per barrel at 1153 GMT. Total has said it will remove the scrip dividend scheme if oil is at around $60 per barrel in 2017. It said in October that it was on track to deliver on its cost reduction programme, and will deliver $4 billion in savings by 2018, while increasing output.

"We see this as a clear positive. We see this as a step in the right direction for Total, on the way to a full cash dividend, and shows the company has confidence in its delivery of free cash flow in 2017," RBC's Biraj Borkhataria, said in a note. "We continue to believe Total should be one of the first majors that currently offers a scrip to move away and towards a full cash dividend, given the strength of its growth pipeline over the next few years," Borkhataria said. Total said in a separate statement after a board meeting on Thursday that it will cancel 100,331,268 treasury shares that were previously repurchased off-market from four affiliates. It said the aim was to tidy its capital structure and the cancellation will have no financial impact. (Reporting by Bate Felix; Editing by Ruth Pitchford)

I don't know if any of you might be interested in Zambeef (ZAM). It's hardly a stodgy defensive. It's a growing AIM-listed African food conglomerate that has announced an intention to pay 30% of post-tax profit as dividend, now it has managed to overcome some troubles and pay down some debt. It still has a high risk profile due to politics, interest rates and exchange rates. But it is cheapish (p/e 5-7ish?) and should see a growing yield that might start around 3-4%. I bought some last week, although I do not plan to build a large holding. DYOR.
