Kansas City Southern Declares Dividends On 4% Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock And Common Stock

Kansas City Southern’s (KCS) (NYSE:KSU) Board of Directors on November 15, 2012 declared a regular cash dividend of $0.25 per share on the outstanding KCS 4% non-cumulative preferred stock. The dividend is payable on December 27, 2012 to preferred stockholders of record at the close of business on December 10, 2012.

The Board of Directors also declared a regular cash dividend of $0.195 per share on the outstanding KCS common stock. This dividend is payable on December 28, 2012, to common stockholders of record at the close of business on December 10, 2012.

The Board considered uncertainty about United States income tax rates beyond 2012 in determining the payable date of this fourth quarter 2012 dividend from the normal January 2013 payable date. The Board expects to continue issuing dividend payments on the Company's normal dividend payment schedule in 2013, commencing with the first quarter 2013 dividend payments, which would be payable in April 2013. In such case, the holders of the Company's outstanding 4% Preferred Stock and outstanding common stock would receive three cash dividend payments in calendar year 2013 as a result of the advancement of this fourth quarter 2012 dividend payment.
