McDonald’s Drops Stock Buybacks Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) has suspended share buybacks to sail through the coronavirus crisis but its dividend policy has remained unchanged, stated Chief Executive Officer Chris Kempczinski to CNBC.

This year in January, McDonald’s declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.25 per share of common stock payable on March 16. Due to the recent shutdowns of restaurants in the United States including restrictions in delivery and takeaway to control the spread of contagious COVD-19, McDonald’s has already moved to defer rent for its operators and shut all dine-in operations.

McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) is the leading global foodservice retailer with nearly 37,000 locations in over 100 countries. The Corporation operates and franchises McDonald’s restaurants in the US and across the globe with over 90% of its restaurants owned and operated by local, independent businessmen and women.
