When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Total ESG risk: 35.73

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and SNC-Lavalin Group's overall score of 35.73 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 63rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like SNC-Lavalin Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

SNC-Lavalin Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 10.38/100

SNC-Lavalin Group's environmental score of 10.38 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that SNC-Lavalin Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

SNC-Lavalin Group's social score

Social score: 22.61/100

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. SNC-Lavalin Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that SNC-Lavalin Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

SNC-Lavalin Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 13.11% of net profits

Recently SNC-Lavalin Group has paid out, on average, around 13.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SNC-Lavalin Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SNC-Lavalin Group's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.08 per share.

While SNC-Lavalin Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SNC-Lavalin Group is investing more in its future growth.

SNC-Lavalin Group's most recent dividend payout was on 2 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have SNC-Lavalin Group's shares ever split?

SNC-Lavalin Group's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 8 March 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SNC-Lavalin Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SNC-Lavalin Group shares which in turn could have impacted SNC-Lavalin Group's share price.

SNC-Lavalin Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SNC-Lavalin Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$21.79 up to C$38.1724. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNC.TO volatility(beta: 1.42)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while SNC-Lavalin Group's is 1.4196. This would suggest that SNC-Lavalin Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
