  • Ford's quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share to be paid in the fourth quarter on its common stock triggers conversion and exercise price adjustments 
  • Conversion and exercise price adjustments are being made pursuant to the terms of convertible debt securities and warrants

Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) announced that as a result of its fourth-quarter dividend in the amount of $0.05 per share on its common stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Ford common stock"), payable Dec. 3, 2012 to holders of record on Nov. 2, 2012, it will adjust the conversion prices for its two outstanding convertible debt securities, which are convertible into Ford common stock, and the exercise price and number of underlying shares with respect to its outstanding warrants to purchase Ford common stock.
