LONDON, March 11 (Reuters) - Rolls-Royce will look at restarting its dividend in 2023 at the earliest, said its chief financial officer on Thursday.
“2023, I would imagine, would be the earliest that we will start considering the dividend coming back,” outgoing chief financial officer Stephen Daintith told investors.
The British aero-engine maker scrapped its dividend last April when the pandemic hit.
It said in its 2020 results statement that it is restricted from making payments to shareholders until after Dec. 31 2022 due to recent loan agreements. (Reporting by Sarah Young, editing by Andy Bruce)
