Singapore Airlines Limited: Dividends (Simplified Chinese Version)
(4 pages of text)
Case (Pub Mat)
A new analyst has been asked to forecast the upcoming dividends for Singapore Airlines Limited. However, unlike most dividend-paying firms, which typically maintain stable, transparent, and simple dividend policies, Singapore Airlines maintained an opaque, complex, and irregular pattern of dividends. Further, the company did not respond to requests for information about expected dividends or the company's dividend policy. The analyst decided to gather historical data about the company and its competitors to gain insights on Singapore Airlines’ dividend policy and to forecast its upcoming dividend.
This case is designed for a graduate or advanced undergraduate course in corporate finance dealing with the topic of dividend payouts. The case could also be used in a strategy class on governance or controlling shareholders. After completing this case, students will be able to
- assess the complexities related to dividend policies; and
- understand the various dividend strategies adopted by firms.
