Dividend Declared

On April 25, 2018, Spirit AeroSystems announced that its Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly $0.12 per share cash dividend on its outstanding common stock; this represents an increase of 20% over the previous quarterly cash dividend. The dividend is payable July 09, 2018, to stockholders of record as of the close of business June 18, 2018.

Spirit AeroSystems’ indicated dividend represents a yield of 0.54%, as compared to the average dividend yield of 1.13% for the Industrial Goods sector.

Dividend Insights

Spirit AeroSystems has a dividend payout ratio of 7.6%, which denotes that the Company spends approximately $0.08 for dividend distribution out of every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much amount a company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.

According to analysts' estimates, Spirit AeroSystems is forecasted to report earnings of $7.27 per share for the next year, which is substantially higher than the Company’s annualized dividend payout of $3.60 per share.

Spirit AeroSystems' cash from operations in Q1 2018 was $167 million compared to $112 million in Q1 2017. The Company’s reported quarter free cash flow was $118 million, up compared to free cash flow of $71 million in the year earlier same quarter. Spirit AeroSystems' cash balance at the end of Q1 2018 was $438 million. The Company's $650 million revolving credit facility remained undrawn at the end of the reported quarter. The Company’s strong financial position indicates its ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain the dividend distribution for a long period.

Recent Development for Spirit AeroSystems

On May 21, 2018, Spirit AeroSystems broke ground on its state-of-the-art Global Digital Logistics Center that will increase storage capacity and part retrieval efficiency at its Wichita site. The new 150,000 square foot facility is being funded through a collaboration agreement between Spirit, the City of Wichita and Sedgwick County.
