The UPS Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.62 per share on all outstanding Class A and Class B shares.
The dividend is payable December 4, 2013, to shareowners of record on November 18, 2013.
The Board also approved the filing of a shelf registration statement authorizing the issuance of debt and equity securities. The filing replaces the Company's expiring shelf registration statement that was filed in November 2010.
Earlier this year, the UPS Board increased the regular quarterly dividend by nearly 9% to the current level of $0.62 per share. UPS's dividend has more than tripled since 2000, growing at a compounded annual rate of 10.5%.
