FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaiser Aluminum Corporation (Nasdaq:KALU) today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.30 per share on the Company's outstanding common stock, representing a 20% increase over the prior quarter's dividend. The dividend will be payable on February 15, 2013 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on January 25, 2013.

Kaiser Aluminum has paid a quarterly dividend since 2007 and has increased its dividend approximately 67% during this period.

Hockema, President, CEO and Chairman. "In addition to underlying demand growth, we remain optimistic that we will continue to benefit from attractive, value-creating growth opportunities through organic investments and acquisitions that will further drive long-term earnings potential," stated Mr. Hockema.
