The Board earlier this year approved the company’s 54th consecutive annual dividend increase, raising the quarterly dividend 6 percent from 33 cents to 35 cents per common share.
This is equivalent to an annual dividend of $1.40 per share, up from $1.32 per share in 2015. The increase reflects the Board’s confidence in the company’s long-term cash flow.
