Sustainable 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.

Total is delivering on its strategy for sustainable and profitable growth in oil and gas activities and investing in growing energy markets, notably LNG and low-carbon electricity.

Consequently, the Group’s cash flow will increase by more than $5 billion by 2025 in a 60 $/b environment, an average increase of around $1 billion per year. As a result of this strong outlook, the Board of Directors decided to accelerate dividend growth for the coming years with a guidance of increasing the dividend by 5 to 6% per year. Including the interim dividends, the full-year 2019 dividend increased by 5% to €2.68 per share.

The Group also continues the share buyback policy in the amount of $5 billion over the 2018-2020 period. End of 2019, the Group will have bought back $3.25 billion in a 60$ / barrel environment.

These decisions reflect the Board’s confidence in the ability of the Group to deliver sustainable and profitable growth for the coming years.
