This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Centrais Electricas Brasileiras shareholders could enjoy a 0.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Centrais Electricas Brasileiras's case, that would currently equate to about $1.494 per share.

Have Centrais Electricas Brasileiras's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Centrais Electricas Brasileiras shares which in turn could have impacted Centrais Electricas Brasileiras's share price.
