Dividend Policy

Pan American’s dividend policy supplements a base dividend of $0.10 per common share with a variable dividend, paid on a quarterly basis, that is linked to the net cash on the balance sheet for the previous quarter, as illustrated in the following table:

Net Cash (1)Base Dividend Per QuarterVariable Dividend Per QuarterTotal Dividend Per Quarter
Less than $100 million$0.10 per share$0.00 per share$0.10 per share
$100 million to less than $200 million$0.10 per share$0.01 per share$0.11 per share
$200 million to less than $300 million$0.10 per share$0.02 per share$0.12 per share
$300 million to less than $400 million$0.10 per share$0.06 per share$0.16 per share
$400 million or greater$0.10 per share$0.08 per share$0.18 per share

(1) Net cash is calculated as cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments, other than equity securities, less total debt. Net cash and total debt are non-GAAP measures and do not have standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies; please refer to the “Alternative Performance (non-GAAP) Measures” section of our management’s discussion and analysis for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, for a discussion of various non-GAAP measures.
