Augmented Payout Ratio
The augmented payout ratio (APR) is a financial metric used to indicate the percentage of earnings that a company pays out as dividends to its shareholders. Unlike the regular payout ratio, which is simply the ratio of dividends paid out to net income, the APR takes into account any share buybacks that the company may have done during the period, as well as any debt repayments or issuance of new debt during the period. This provides a more complete picture of the company's ability to sustain its dividend payments over the longer term. The higher the APR, the more of a company's earnings are being distributed to shareholders in the form of dividends.
