Williams Increases 3rd-Quarter Dividend To $0.36625 Per Share; Reaffirms 2013-2015 Guidance For 20% Annual Dividend Growth

Stocks in this article: WMB

Williams' (NYSE: WMB) board of directors has approved a regular dividend of $0.36625 on the company's common stock, payable Sept. 30, 2013, to holders of record at the close of business on Sept. 13.

The third-quarter 2013 dividend is 17.2 percent higher than the year-ago amount and 3.9 percent higher than the most recent quarterly dividend.

The company continues to expect to increase the full-year dividend it pays shareholders by 20 percent in each 2013, 2014 and 2015 – to per-share amounts of $1.44, $1.75 and $2.11, respectively. Williams’ full-year dividend for 2012 was $1.20 per share.

The expected quarterly increases in Williams' dividend are subject to quarterly approval of Williams' board of directors.

Williams has paid a common stock dividend every quarter since 1974.
