EQT Takes Further Actions To Prioritize Debt Repayment Via Dividend Suspension

Werbung

PITTSBURGH, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- EQT Corporation (NYSE: EQT) today announced that its Board of Directors has elected to suspend the quarterly cash dividend on its common stock, effective immediately, accelerating cash flow to be utilized for EQT's debt reduction strategy. EQT expects this action will result in approximately $30 million per year in retained cash savings, which EQT intends to use to pay down additional near-term debt maturities.

President and CEO Toby Rice stated: "The decision to suspend EQT's dividend is another action to display our commitment to our debt reduction strategy, which also includes utilizing substantial near-term free cash flow and asset monetization proceeds to reduce debt.  As we enhance our balance sheet and leverage metrics over-time, we will re-visit our shareholder return and dividend policy. These actions will better position EQT's financial framework."
