Dividend Clawback

The HTML to link to this page

A dividend clawback is an incentive for investors to keep investment development plans on schedule. Dividend clawback means a promise by investors to return dividends as equity to the investment if any cash deficiencies occur. A divended clawback pays for any investment shortfall from project cost overruns. For example, if 20 investors received $20 million in dividends and later a $10 million shortfall occurs, the dividend clawback to fund the deficiency is $10 million. If there is no investment shortfall, no dividend clawback is paid. Dividend clawback contracts are most common in project finance. When investors pay a dividend clawback they do not pay cash, they pay prior dividends already received in order to add equity to the project. The dividend clawback amount is always limited to the project's cash shortage and does not provide capital for new plans.
