“We are proud to continue PPG's tradition of annual dividend increases, especially given this year's difficult economic environment,” said Charles E. Bunch, PPG chairman of the board and chief executive officer. “This increase not only demonstrates the confidence we have in PPG’s business portfolio to generate cash consistently, but it also underscores the value we place on returning cash to our shareholders.”
PPG’s prior quarterly dividend was 53 cents a share.
This marks the company’s 445th consecutive dividend payment. PPG has paid uninterrupted annual dividends since 1899.
