Technology specialist Logitech (NASDAQ:LOGI) announced yesterday that the board of directors had decided to initiate the payment of a recurring regular dividend issued on an annual basis.

The first payout was set at CHF 0.21 per share, or about $0.22 per share at current exchange rates.
Logitech issued a special dividend of $0.847639 per share in September 2012.
The new, regular dividend payment would yield 3.3% based on the closing price of Logitech's stock on May 22.
