Husky Energy suspends quarterly dividend

Husky Energy (HSE.TO) will stop paying quarterly dividends.

In its press release Husky says it continues to triangulate its top three business priorities; a strong balance sheet, dividend and transition into a low sustaining capital business. While Husky fully recognizes the importance of the dividend, the balance sheet takes precedence in this environment.

A stock dividend was introduced in the third quarter as an interim measure in lieu of a cash dividend. Given the persistent downward pressure on oil prices and the extended lower for longer outlook, the Board of Directors has suspended the quarterly dividend. No cash or share dividend will be issued for the fourth quarter of 2015.
