The 5% will get $1.25, while both the 5.75% and the 5.75% Series A issues are to be paid $14.375 apiece. Payouts for all three will occur on November 15 for holders in possession of their stock as of November 1.

The just-declared common stock dividend annualizes to $0.35 per share. That yields 1.3% at Chesapeake's most recent closing stock price of $26.38.
