HOUSTON, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG) today announced that its Board of Directors declared a two-for-one stock split of the Company's Common Stock to be accomplished by means of a stock distribution. The additional shares will be distributed on January 25, 2012 to shareholders of record on January 17, 2012.

"Additionally, Cabot's quarterly dividend payments will increase 33 percent as the Board elected to approve an increase in the cash dividend on a pre-split basis from $0.12 to $0.16 per share annually," said Dan O.
