Business BT dividend under threat as pensions face top-up Gavin Patterson BT's chief executive Gavin Patterson faces tough decisions over the company's pension fund and its dividend Credit: Chris Ratcliffe/Bloomberg Christopher Williams, Deputy Business Editor 5 May 2018 • 8:00pm BT faces a fight to save its dividend as it prepares to reveal a £13bn funding black hole in its pension scheme. The company will reveal the impact of its triennial pension review alongside annual results on Thursday, a move that is expected to trigger a sharp increase in top-up payments to as much as £1.1bn annually. Chief executive Gavin Patterson will aim to soften the blow to BT’s cash flow with a strategy update to slash operating costs, including by cutting thousands of jobs and slimming down the struggling Global Services outsourcing division. The restructuring is expected to save £500m over three years. Promoted Stories Une solution qui met un terme à ronfler dans son lit My Snoring Solution Don't Fly From France Until You See These Prices Don't Fly From France Until You See These Prices Save 70 BT has also been working on a deal to pledge assets to the pension scheme as security, to provide trustees comfort that retirements will be funded if the company hits trouble and so make the top-up payment schedule less onerous. It had explored signing over rights to its network but it is understood alternative assets are now on the table. The change of plans could one day make a sale of its network subsidiary Openreach more simple. Despite BT’s efforts, its policy of holding or increasing the dividend to around a million shareholders a year is viewed as being under threat. It is under pressure from politicians and regulators to increase investment in “full fibre” broadband upgrades but has resisted, in part due to opposition from its biggest shareholder Deutsche Telekom, which faces similar lobbying in Germany. BT’s strategy update could signal more spending over time, however, following a recent warning from Ofcom chief executive Sharon White that failure to invest in new technology could mean it is overtaken by new rivals. Barclays cut its target price on the shares last week, citing emerging competition from new full fibre wholesalers. Analysts have struggled to predict whether a dividend cut is likely. Citi has given even odds, while Exane has forecast a 30pc cut. BT declined to comment on the issue.

Home > News > Shell makes investors wait for reward from surging oil prices Shell makes investors wait for reward from surging oil prices By Kelly Gilblom on 4/26/2018 LONDON (Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc rode the surge in oil prices to even greater heights, posting a profit not seen since the days of $100/bbl. Investors were displeased that the company didn’t take them along for the ride. While French rival Total SA has started disbursing the rewards of rising energy prices -- with higher dividends and share buybacks -- Shell has other priorities, at least for now. CFO Jessica Uhl declined to say when her planned $25-billion to $30-billion stock-repurchase program would start, telling reporters on a call that she wanted to focus on debt reduction first. There are two big reasons for the company’s caution. First, it still has to pay off the acquisition of BG Group Plc in 2016, a deal that’s turbo charged natural gas earnings but left Shell heavily indebted. Second, its cash flow -- little changed from a year earlier despite higher oil prices -- “may not necessarily support” the planned buybacks, according to RBC Capital Markets. Earnings at Europe’s largest energy company vaulted ahead of the upswing in crude to an average of $67 in the first quarter, reaping the benefits of years of cost cuts. Adjusted net income was $5.32 billion last quarter, compared with $3.75 billion a year earlier. That surpassed analysts expectations of $5.2 billion, rising to a level only consistently seen when oil traded for more than $100. Total and Statoil ASA also posted the best earnings in years this week, with Total pumping a record amount of oil and gas in the first quarter. Shares of the French company rose in response to its results, the opposite of the reaction to Shell. Shell dropped as much as 2.8% as analysts raised concerns about flat cash flow from operations, which was $9.43 billion in the first three months of 2018. “The only negative here is the conversion of those earnings into cash flow,” Oswald Clint, an analyst at Bernstein Research, said by telephone. “It’s a little bit lighter than what I was expecting.” Shell’s free cash flow was sufficient to fund the company’s cash dividends and interest payments in the first quarter, which wasn’t always the case during the oil-price slump. Like its peers, Shell was forced to make some payments to investors in shares during the downturn, known as a scrip dividend, while also borrowing to fund the cash portion of the payout. Those newly created shares diluted the holdings of some investors, who have maintained a sharp focus on the timing of the buybacks required to offset the impact. Shell wasn’t able to offer a clear answer on what could trigger the repurchases. “It’s an integrated decision. I’ve provided enough insight,” CFO Uhl told reporters in response to several questions about buybacks. That situation should change. Barclays analysts said in a note that they expect Shell to begin the program in the second half. “We would expect cash flow growth through the year supported by the current macro environment,” said Biraj Borkhataria, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets. “Royal Dutch Shell remains one of our preferred super-majors.”
26/04/2018 | 11:09 In line with its 2018-20 shareholder return policy, Total announces that its first interim dividend for 2018 is set at 0.64 euro per share, up 3.2% from the three down payments and the proposed balance for 2017. The oil group's board of directors will meet on 19 September to decide on the conditions for the distribution of this first interim dividend in respect of 2018. It will be posted on 25 September. The option to pay the deposit in new shares will be offered: according to the calendar, the option period will run from September 25 to October 4, for payment in cash or new shares on October 12.
