Dividend Insight

Briggs & Stratton has a dividend payout ratio of 36.6%, which indicates that the Company spends approximately $0.37 for dividend distribution out of every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much amount a company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.

According to analysts' estimates, Briggs & Stratton is forecasted to report earnings of $1.81 for the next year, which is more than triple compared to the Company's annualized dividend of $0.56 per share.

As of December 31, 2017, Briggs & Stratton's cash and cash equivalents totaled $66.37 million compared to $47.33 million on January 02, 2017. The Company's net debt at December 31, 2017, was $285.4 million compared to $307.9 million at January 02, 2017. Briggs & Stratton's cash flows used in operating activities for H1 FY18 were $64.9 million compared to $126.6 million for H1 FY17. The decrease in cash used in operating activities was primarily related to changes in working capital as well as higher accounts payable due to timing. The Company's strong financial position indicates its ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain the dividend distribution for a long period.

Recent Development for Briggs & Stratton

On February 26, 2018, Allmand Bros. Inc., a subsidiary of Briggs & Stratton, introduced their newest light tower offering, the Night-Lite™ E-Series.

The Night-Lite E-Series features four LED light fixtures that provide an output of 154,000 lumens. The automatic on/off functionality with a timer and photocell help ensure the highest level of performance and efficiency. Event manager and crews can rely on the timer feature to easily manage when the tower turns on and off, while the photocell can sense daylight and control the light accordingly.

The E-Series tower was developed with the coiled power cable secured to the top of the first, third, and fifth sections to minimize tangling, making it easy for event crews to set up. In addition, the unit stabilizers feature a four-point design with foldable outriggers so the unit can withstand windy conditions.
