This paper examines Lenovo’s 1617 Annual Report to analyze internal factors of the dividend policy. Dividend policy illustrates relevant events like whether corporations issue dividends, about what percentage of dividends would be issued and when would be the issuing date. Virtually, the main concept of dividend issuance is to distribute corporations’ net profit, which could affect both shareholder’s ownership and retained earnings. Now that dividends are vital to managers and investors, what factors can affect dividend payout? Previous studies have already shown that several external determinants matter in dividend payout. This paper mainly reports internal factors including short-term liquidity, long-term solvency, profitability and efficiency. Moreover, unlike previous articles which used experimental data analysis, this paper uses ratio analysis to present the relationship between each determinant and dividend payout. The paper illustrates that all these internal factors have positive relationships with the dividend payout ratio.
