the historical average.

The payout ratio tells us how much of a company’s income is paid out in dividends. A payout ratio of one (1.0)
means 100{21df340e03e388cc75c411746d1a214f72c176b221768b7ada42b4d751988996} of the company’s income is paid in a dividend.
A payout ratio greater than one means the company is dipping into savings in order to maintain its dividend – not a
healthy situation.
Companies with few growth prospects are expected to pay out most of their income in dividends, which typically
means a payout ratio between 0.5 and 1.0.
Companies with good growth prospects are expected to retain some earnings in order to invest
in those growth prospects, which translates to a payout ratio of zero to 0.5.

The company has not increased its dividend in the last three years.
