Golar LNG maintains Q4 dividend at 45c per share Coinciding with a chartering market that is expected to be weak for the next 9-12 months, Golar has embarked on a period of rapid growth linked to the new investments in the floating LNG liquefaction business. The board continues to maintain the position that a regular and stable to growing dividend is a key part of the return to shareholders. With respect to Q4, the board has decided to maintain the dividend at 45c per share. The company does not expect further material growth in the dividend ahead of an upturn in the shipping market or until the floating LNG liquefaction units become free cash generative. The record date for the dividend will be March 12, ex-dividend date is March 10 and the dividend will be paid on or about March 24.
