The company sticks to its existing dividend policy, even as it prepares to be absorbed by PacWest.

CapitalSource (NYSE: CSE) has elected to stick to its long-term dividend policy, despite a looming change in ownership. The lender declared a common stock dividend of $0.01 per share for its Q3. This will be dispensed on or about September 27 to shareholders of record as of September 13. That amount matches all of CapitalSource's payouts stretching back to March 2009, with the exception of a special dividend of $0.50 per share that was paid at the end of last year.

The company is keeping its payout steady in advance of its impending absorption into fellow California financial PacWest Bancorp, a $2.3 billion acquisition that was announced in July.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $0.04 per share. That yields 0.3% at CapitalSource's most recent closing stock price of $11.61.
