Tulsa-based Williams’ board of directors has approved a regular dividend of $0.40 per share, or $1.60 annualized, on the company’s common stock, payable on Dec. 28, 2020, to holders of record at the close of business on Dec. 11, 2020.
The dividend is consistent with the third-quarter 2020 dividend and is a 5.3% increase from Williams fourth-quarter 2019 dividend of $0.38 per share, paid in December 2019.
Some portion of this distribution may be considered a return of capital for tax purposes. Williams has paid a common stock dividend every quarter since 1974.
Williams plans to announce its third-quarter 2020 financial results after the market closes on Monday, Nov. 2, 2020. The company’s third-quarter 2020 earnings conference call and webcast with analysts and investors is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020, at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time (8:30 a.m. Central Time).
