Adacel Technologies share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 66.67% of net profits
Recently Adacel Technologies has paid out, on average, around 66.67% of net profits as dividends.

In Adacel Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.06 per share.
Adacel Technologies's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
