Anadarko issues dividend as it prepares to be acquired by Occidental Petroleum


Days after accepting Occidental Petroleum’s $57 billion acquisition offer, the board of directors at Anadarko Petroleum Corporation announced a 30-cent-a-share dividend.

The board said the dividend will be payable June 26, 2019 to those stockholders of record at the close of business on June 12, 2019.
