DUBLIN, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Cooper Industries plc (NYSE:CBE) has declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.21 on each share of the Company's outstanding common stock.  The dividend is payable November 16, 2012, to shareholders of record on November 1, 2012.

On October 26, 2012, in connection with the previously announced transaction with Eaton Corporation (NYSE: ETN), both companies will hold special meetings to seek approval from shareholders to adopt the transaction agreement and approve the merger and certain related proposals.   Provided approval is received from both Cooper and Eaton shareholders, the transaction with Eaton is expected to close after customary regulatory approvals.

About Cooper IndustriesCooper Industries plc (NYSE: CBE) is a global electrical products manufacturer with 2011 revenues of $5.4 billion.  Founded in 1833 Cooper's sustained success is attributable to a constant focus on innovation and evolving business practices, while maintaining the highest ethical standards and meeting customer needs.  The Company has seven operating divisions with leading market positions and world-class products and brands, including Bussmann electrical and electronic fuses; Crouse-Hinds and CEAG explosion-proof electrical equipment; Halo and Metalux lighting fixtures; and Kyle and McGraw-Edison power systems products.  With this broad range of products, Cooper is uniquely positioned for several long-term growth trends including the global infrastructure build-out, the need to improve the reliability and productivity of the electric grid, the demand for higher energy-efficient products and the need for improved electrical safety.  In 2011 sixty-two percent of total sales were to customers in the industrial and utility end-markets and forty percent of total sales were to customers outside the United States.  Cooper has manufacturing facilities in 23 countries as of 2011.  For more information, visit the website at www.cooperindustries.com.
