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.”

Dividends Marshalls has strong cash generation and a robust balance sheet which underpins a progressive dividend policy aimed at achieving up to 2 times dividend cover over the business cycle. The Board is recommending a final dividend of 6.80 pence (2016: 5.80 pence) per share which, together with the interim dividend of 3.40 pence (2016: 2.90 pence) per share, makes a total ordinary dividend for the year of 10.20 pence (2016: 8.70 pence) per share, an increase of 17 per cent. Given another strong performance in the year, the Board is also recommending a supplementary dividend of 4.00 pence per share for 2017 (2016: 3.00 pence). As previously, this supplementary dividend is discretionary and non-recurring. The payment of a supplementary dividend recognises the Board's objective of maintaining an efficient and prudent capital structure and providing increased returns for shareholders whilst at the same time retaining flexibility for capital and other investment opportunities. Taken together, the ordinary and supplementary dividends represent an aggregate distribution for the year of 14.20 pence per share (2016: 11.70 pence). Subject to shareholders' approval at the Annual General Meeting on 9 May 2018, the final ordinary dividend of 6.80 pence per ordinary share and the supplementary dividend of 4.00 pence per share will be paid on 29 June 2018 to shareholders on the register at 8 June 2018. Outlook The Group has again delivered strong profit growth year-on-year. Good progress has been made in the year executing the 2020 Strategy, notably the acquisition of CPM, and the ongoing self help programme to drive organic growth is progressing well. The underlying drivers have remained positive in our main end markets and our sales and order intake have been strong in the first two months of 2018.

Despite a volatile environment over the past three years, Total has successfully repositioned itself, achieving solid results in 2017 thanks to good operating performance and lowering its organic break-even point before Brent's dividend to $ 27 / b. Major investments over the past five years have resulted in strong growth in high margin production. The Group has also strengthened by investing on a counter-cycle and has acquired resources on attractive terms. It enjoys strong visibility on the growth of its cash flow and increased financial flexibility thanks to a debt ratio (net debt on capital) lowered to 12% at the end of 2017. Confident in the ability of the Group's teams to seize value-creating growth opportunities, the Board of Directors reaffirms the priority it gives to the implementation of the Group's long-term industrial strategy. In this context, the Board of Directors wished to give visibility to the policy of allocation of cash flow and return to the shareholder for the next three years. It has confirmed an investment program of $ 15 - $ 17 billion a year, has set a target of maintaining the debt ratio (net debt to capital) below 20% and maintaining a grade A rating and has also proposed the following measures: 1. Dividend increase of 10% over the next 3 years A dividend for 2017 of € 2.48 / share will be proposed to the Shareholders' Meeting, which corresponds to a balance of € 0.62 / share and a dividend increase of 1.2% compared to 2016 The quarterly installments for the 20181 financial year will be increased by 3.2% to € 0.64 per share, with the intention of proposing to the Annual General Meeting a dividend for the 2018 financial year of € 2.56 / share. The dividend target for the 2020 financial year would be € 2.72 / share 2. Redemption of shares issued without a discount under the share dividend option Maintaining the dividend in stock option to meet the wishes of certain shareholders but without discounting the issue price on the share price Repurchase of newly issued shares for cancellation. No dilution linked to the stock dividend option as of 2018 Immediate redemption of the shares issued in January 2018 as part of the payment of the second installment 2017 3. Up to $ 5 billion of share buybacks over the 2018-20 period The goal is to share with shareholders the benefits of rising oil prices Buyback volumes will be adjusted for oil prices This comes in addition to the repurchase of shares issued as part of the stock dividend 2017 dividend The Board of Directors proposes to the Combined General Meeting of Shareholders, to be held on June 1, 2018, to set the dividend for the 2017 financial year at € 2.48 / share, an increase of 1.2% compared to 2016. Given the three installments of € 0.62 / share for the 2017 financial year, a balance of € 0.62 / share is therefore proposed. The Board also proposes that the Shareholders' Meeting decide to offer shareholders the possibility of receiving the payment of this dividend balance for the 2017 financial year, either in cash or by subscribing for new shares of the Company without a discount. Therefore, subject to approval by the General Assembly of the resolution to be proposed: the balance of the dividend will be detached from the share on Euronext Paris on June 11, 2018; the payment in cash and / or the delivery of any shares issued, depending on the option chosen, should take place on June 28, 2018. 1The first deposit will be paid in October 2018 * * * * * Total contacts Investor Relations: +44 (0) 207 719 7962 l ir@total.com

ArcelorMittal (MT.AE) reported its fourth-quarter results before the market opened on Wednesday. Here's what you need to know: SALES: Sales rose by about 25% to $17.71 billion due to higher steel and iron-ore shipments and higher average steel selling prices. The results fell slightly short of a FactSet-compiled consensus of analyst estimates that forecast $17.94 billion. NET INCOME: The steelmaker posted quarterly net profit of $1.04 billion, more than doubling its result from a year ago, propped up by sales performance. The company recorded an income tax benefit of $119 million in the quarter, which compares with a $71 million tax expense in the year-earlier period. MACRO OUTLOOK: ArcelorMittal was upbeat about the steel industry outlook for 2018, saying that the demand environment remains positive and steel spreads remaining healthy. The company estimates global steel demand--measured through apparent steel consumption--to grow between 1.5% and 2.5% in 2018, with Chinese demand flat. CASH FLOW: Net debt decreased this quarter by $1.9 billion to $10.1 billion, mainly due to positive free cash flow. The debt figure at year-end was $0.9 billion lower than on Dec. 31, 2016. ArcelorMittal said that it would continue to prioritize deleveraging--it has a net debt target of $6 billion--but proposed a dividend of $0.10 per share in 2018. Once the debt level falls to or below its target, the company will return a portion of annual free cash flow to shareholders, it said. ILVA: ArcelorMittal said that it will continue "to work closely and constructively" with the European Commission, which has opened a phase II review of its proposed acquisition of Italian steelmaker Ilva. Arcelor's 1.8 billion euros ($2.23 billion) acquisition had become mired in controversy after an EU antitrust investigation ruled that the Italian government must recover around EUR84 million in illegal state aid.
