On January 10, 2018, Apogee's Board of Directors announced it has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.1575 per share, payable on February 14, 2018, to shareholders of record on January 30, 2018. The dividend of $0.1575 per share represents an increase of 12.5% from the previous quarterly dividend of $0.14 per share.
Apogee's indicated dividend represents a yield of 1.41%, which is substantially higher than the average dividend yield of 1.04% for the Industrial Goods sector. The Company has raised dividend for six consecutive years.
Apogee has a dividend payout ratio of 20.7%, which means that the Company spends approximately $0.21 for dividend distribution out of every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much amount a company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.
According to analysts' estimates, Apogee is forecasted to report earnings of $3.61 per share for the next year, which is more than five timed the Company's annualized dividend of $0.63 per share.

Apogee's year-to-date free cash flow was $27 million. The Company's strong financial position indicates its ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain the dividend distribution for a long period.
On January 05, 2018, Apogee announced that is making significant investments in its Viracon architectural glass business for new capabilities, automation, and improved productivity that are yielding increased capacity. Apogee also announced that it does no longer require the capacity from its smallest domestic architectural glass plant in St. George, Utah, and will be closing that facility in March 2018.
In the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter, Apogee will be taking a restructuring charge of approximately $4.5 million, or $0.11 per share, primarily related to the plant closure. This charge was reflected in Apogee's current fiscal 2018 outlook provided in December 2017. The payback is expected to be approximately one year.
