RPM Accelerates Date Of Quarterly Dividend Payment

MEDINA, Ohio, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RPM International Inc. (NYSE: RPM) today announced that its board of directors approved a change in the payment date of its regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.225 per share to December 28, 2012, payable to stockholders of record as of December 17, 2012.

This dividend payment is intended to be in lieu of the quarterly dividend that would have been paid in January 2013. The next quarterly dividend is anticipated to be paid in April 2013.

RPM's last cash dividend increase of 4.7 percent in October 2012 marked its 39th consecutive year of increased cash dividends paid to its stockholders, which places RPM in an elite category of less than half of 1 percent of all 19,000 publicly-traded U.S. companies. Only 47 other companies, besides RPM, have consecutively paid an increasing annual dividend for this period of time or longer, according to the fall 2012 edition of the Mergent Handbook of Dividend Achievers. At a share price of $28.50, RPM's dividend yield would be 3.2 percent.
