SiriusXM (SIRI) will pay a special dividend of $0.25 per share in 2022. SiriusXM today announced that its Board of Directors declared a special cash dividend of $0.25 per share, payable on February 25, 2022, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 11, 2022. The total amount of the special cash dividend is expected to be approximately $1 billion.
This special dividend is in addition to the regular quarterly cash dividend that SiriusXM's Board declared on January 26, 2022. SiriusXM increased its regular quarterly cash dividend by 50% in October 2021.
"2021 was an outstanding year across the board. We added more than one million net new SiriusXM self-pay subscribers for the tenth time in the past 11 years; this growth continues to be sustained by a fifth straight year of improving churn. Once again we outperformed all of 2021's public guidance, and now our strong financial position enables us to declare a special cash dividend to our stockholders," said Jennifer Witz, Chief Executive Officer of SiriusXM.
