According to the report of S&P Global Market Intelligence (above table) cash flow performance generated by SATS are stable free cash flow per share for FY15/16 and FY16/17 followed by a drop in FY17/18. The downtrend was due to changes in working capital which dragged its operational cash flow lower, coupled with an increase in capital expenditure. 

SATS Dividend

Now we can analyze the SATS’s dividends per share and payout ratio to see if its dividend sustainable. SATS has grown its dividend per share from S$0.13 in FY13/14 to S$0.18, the average increase is 8.5A% per year. In spite of the increase in dividends, the company’s payout ratio hasn’t changed much moving from around 71% in FY15/16 to about 73% in FY17/18. The stable payout ratio suggests that SATS is not extended itself when it comes to paying out dividends, which should allow the company to sustain its dividend into the future.

SAT’s income, cash-flow, and balance sheets are on strong footing. As such, it should not come as too much of a surprise to see the company outpacing the market two times.
