The dividend is payable March 7, 2018 to shareowners of record on Feb. 20, 2018. “Dividends remain a high priority at UPS,” said David Abney, UPS chairman and CEO. “Our strong cash flow from operations has enabled us to pay a stable or growing dividend for nearly 50 years.” UPS has a long history of rewarding shareowners with generous cash dividends. The company has paid a cash dividend every year since 1969 and has more than quadrupled its dividend since it went public at the end of 1999.
