Mondelez Declares Dividend, Authorizes Share Buybacks

Mondelez International's (NASDAQ: MDLZ  ) first quarterly dividend for 2013 will match its previous payout, and the snacks and sweets giant has also OK'd a share-buyback program. The company will hand out $0.13 per share of its common Class A stock on April 15 to shareholders of record as of April 1. The company paid its previous disbursement last December.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $0.52 per share, which yields 1.8% at Mondelez's current stock price of $28.47.

The main objective of the share-buyback program is to offset dilution from its equity compensation plans. The authorization covers the buyback of up to 40 million shares or $1.2 billion worth of common Class A stock, whichever is the lesser amount.
