HP Raises Quarterly Dividend by 10%

By    |   Monday, 26 March 2012 10:31 AM

Hewlett-Packard raised its quarterly dividend by 10 percent, making good on a pledge to shareholders even as it struggles to stabilize its operations and grow its revenue.

HP has said it intended to increase its regular dividend annually, and that the increase would be in the double digits. It has about 1.98 billion shares of common stock outstanding.

The current increase in the dividend will be effective as of May 2012.

The Palo Alto, Calif., company’s current dividend of 12 cents per share to be paid in April will remain the same. A 10 percent increase would mean its new dividend is 13.2 cents per share.

The company also amended its bylaws to reflect that it now has only 11 directors, down from 14 previously, HP said in a regulatory filing.

The slate of 11 directors was elected by shareholders at a meeting on Wednesday.
