BRIEF: National Presto to pay annual dividend early
Dec 08, 2012 (Menafn - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --National Presto Industries is paying its annual dividend early, given the uncertainty over federal tax rates, the company said Friday.
The 2013 dividend consists of the regular payment of 1 per share, plus an extra 5.50, and is the most recent in an unbroken history of 69 years of payments, according to the company.
The dividend will be paid Dec. 28 for shareholders of record as of Dec. 17.
Normally, the payment would be made next March. But the board of directors decided to accelerate the payment date.
Based in Eau Claire, National Presto makes small appliances, adult diapers and ammunition.
