The board of directors said the quarterly dividend is payable on June 26 to the holders of record at the close of business on June 7. After emerging from bankruptcy protection, Lear initiated a $0.25-per-share dividend in 2011 and then split its stock 2-for-1 with the payout being made at the pre-split level. The dividend has been increased each year thereafter.
The regular dividend payment equates to a $0.68-per-share annual dividend yielding 1.1% based on the closing price of Lear's stock on May 16.
