Aqua America 9 Percent Cash Dividend Increase And Five-for-Four Stock Split Effective On September 1

Aqua America, Inc. (NYSE: WTR) is reminding shareholders that the 9 percent cash dividend increase and the five-for-four stock split approved by its Board of Directors on May 8, 2013, was effective on September 1, 2013, and priced with the market opening on September 3, 2013, to shareholders of record on August 16, 2013.

The increased September 1, 2013 dividend will be applied to the shares prior to the stock split.

The stock split will be effected through a stock distribution of one share for each four shares outstanding as of August 16, 2013.

This is the 23rd cash dividend increase granted by the company in the last 22 years and the seventh stock split in 17 years.
