The paper uses firms across different ownership categories to examine the factors influencing dividend policy. The results suggest that bigger, mature and low-leveraged firms tend to pay more dividends. As well, the findings suggest that bigger, less profitable and high-leveraged firms are more likely to initiate a dividend cut.
