Eldorado's strategy of being a low-cost operator of high quality assets has returned healthy margins that have allowed us to create a leading dividend payout ratio.
We paid our first dividend in June 2010 and announced a semi-annual dividend policy in early 2011. Later that year, we improved the dividend formula and made the policy more transparent. Dividends are now based on the ounces of gold produced and the gold price. For more information please see our press release of October 17, 2011.
We have a solid track record of delivering returns to our shareholders. 2012 dividends were 36% ($0.15/share) higher than those paid in 2011 ($0.11/share). And 2011 dividends increased 120% over 2010 levels ($0.05/share).
