Dividends

Shareholder Return Policy

Total’s dividend payment ensures that our 450,000 shareholders benefit from the growth of the company. Our dividend, paid quarterly to our shareholders, is proof of our commitment to long term value creation. With a dividend increasing or stable every year since 1982, it also offers an attractive yield.

The Group has clear visibility on its cash flow growth, supported notably by the start-ups of 8 outstanding projects in 2018 and 2019 and recent acquisitions.

In this context, we confirm our cash flow allocation policy announced in February 2018 over the 2018-2020 period:

  • Priority to implement its long term growth strategy with a capital investment program of 15-17 B$ per year
  • Increasing the dividend by 10% over the 2018-2020 period and buying back shares issued with no discount as part of the scrip dividend option
  • Maintain gearing ratio below 20% and grade A credit rating
  • Buying back up to 5 B$ of shares, adjusted to the oil price

Conforming to this policy, the Group increased the 2018 dividend by 3.2% and bought back $1.5 billion of its shares in 2018. In 2019, it plans to increase the interim dividend by 3.1%, end the scrip dividend option following the general assembly meeting, and continue the share buyback policy in the amount of $1.5 billion in a 60 $/b environment.

Dividend yield

Gross dividend yield of 5.6% per year on average over the last 10 years.
