A closer look:

  • Second-quarter dividends were about $571 million, or $4.75 per share
  • This represents approximately 30% of the second-quarter net income and a 10% one-time catch-up from the first quarter 2022 net income.
  • The rise in cash dividends can be attributed to Zim's increasing its average freight rate per twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) in the second quarter to $3,596 — that's a year-over-year increase of 54%.
  • Operating income for the second quarter was $1.76 billion — a year-over-year increase of 52%.
  • As the firm generates more income, in turn, it will be able to distribute more capital to its shareholders.
  • The company reaffirmed its 2022 fiscal guidance and expects to generate record adjusted EBITDA of $7.8 billion to $8.2 billion.

“We reported today strong Q2 results, including net profit of $1.34 billion, as well as our best ever first half-year results with standout margins, among the highest of our liner peers," Zim president and CEO Eli Glickman said.
