Gold Fields (NYSE:GFI) said today it is upping its dividend upon completion of Yamana Gold.

In May Gold Fields announced the $6.7-billion acquisition of Yamana.

"Given our strong conviction on cash flows, Gold Fields will revise its dividend policy to enable it to declare an interim and final dividend in respect of each financial year, based on 30-45% of the normalised earnings attributable to owners of the parent," said Gold Fields in a news release stating that the dividend will be at the top end following implementation of the proposed acquisition.

Gold Fields will apply to have its securities listed on the TSX, subject to the completion of the transaction. Gold Fields is already list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and has a secondary listing of American depositary shares on the New York Stock Exchange.
