RPM International Inc. has announced a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.205 per share, payable on Jan. 29, 2010, to stockholders of record as of Jan. 15, 2010. This payment represents a 2.5% increase over the $0.20 quarterly cash dividend paid at this time last year.
RPM's cash dividend increase in Oct. 2009 marked its 36th
consecutive year of increased cash dividends paid to stockholders, which places
RPM in an elite category of less than half of one percent of all 19,000
publicly traded U.S.
companies. Only 56 other companies have consecutively paid an increasing annual
dividend for this period of time or longer, according to the 2010 edition ofAmerica's
Finest Companies. At a share price of $21.00, RPM's dividend yield
would be approximately 4%.
