All financial figures are in Canadian dollars.
Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - May 9, 2022) - Suncor (TSX: SU) (NYSE: SU) Energy's Board of Directors has approved a quarterly dividend of $0.47 cents per common share representing a 12% increase over the prior quarter dividend and the highest quarterly dividend in the company's history.
A combination of operational improvements, the accelerated realization of the $2 billion free funds flow target and a higher level of share buybacks have driven free funds flow per share that is stronger than the scenario presented at the 2021 Investor Day. This has enabled accelerated dividend increases including doubling the dividend last October and the further increase to the dividend announced today.
This dividend will be payable June 24, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 3, 2022.
