Dividend Program

OpenText has adopted a policy to declare non-cumulative quarterly dividends to holders of its common shares. The board of directors is under no obligation to declare dividends in the future and the declaration of future dividends is wholly within its discretion.
Shareholder dividends represent a portion of a company's earnings or profits that are distributed to shareholders. Dividends are paid on a per share basis. The board of directors considers various factors in determining if it is appropriate to declare a dividend, including the company's earnings, financial condition and capital requirements.
In order to be eligible to receive a dividend, you need to be a registered holder of OpenText common shares on the record date of the applicable dividend.
The board of directors determines the dividend payment period, and has determined dividends are paid quarterly.
OpenText began paying dividends on June 21, 2013.  OpenText’s dividend history can be found here.
OpenText has declared dividends in U.S. dollars. Registered shareholders may elect to receive dividends in U.S. dollars or Canadian dollars.
