Dividend Increase – Pfizer Inc. (PFE)

 


Friday, December 11 the Board of Directors of Pfizer Inc. announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 0.38 to $ 0.39 per share that’s payable March 5, 2020 to holders of record January 29, 2020. This represents a 2.63% increase over last quarterly dividend.

 

The transaction to combine Upjohn with Mylan to form Viatris Inc. closed on November 16, 2020. It is expected that Viatris will begin paying a quarterly dividend in the second quarter of 2021, at which time Pfizer’s quarterly dividend will be reduced such that the combined dividend dollar amount received by Pfizer shareholders, based upon the combination of continued Pfizer ownership and approximately 0.124079 shares of Viatris which were granted for each Pfizer share in the spin-off, will equate to Pfizer’s dividend amount in effect immediately prior to the initiation of the Viatris dividend.

 

“Our commitment to returning capital to shareholders is strong and the dividend increase reflects our continued confidence in the business and in our scientific pipeline,” stated Dr. Albert Bourla, Pfizer Chairman and CEO. “It also reinforces that our focus on creating meaningful value for patients benefits all our stakeholders.”
