SandRidge Energy Sets Semiannual Preferred Dividend

Oil and gas producer SandRidge Energy  (NYSE: SD  ) announced yesterday a semiannual dividend of $4.25 per share on its 8.5% convertible perpetual preferred stock, of which there are 2.65 million shares outstanding.

The board of directors said the quarterly dividend is payable on Aug. 15 to the holders of record at the close of business on Aug. 1.
