US BANCORP : U.S. Bancorp Announces Quarterly Dividends

12/14/2010 | 01:10pm US/Eastern

The board of directors of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.05 per common share, payable January 18, 2011, to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 31, 2010. At this quarterly dividend rate, the annual dividend is equivalent to $0.20 per common share.

U.S. Bancorp Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Richard K. Davis said, ?Raising the dividend is a top priority for our Company's board of directors and senior management. On November 17th, the Federal Reserve issued guidelines by which they will evaluate proposals by large bank holding companies to take capital actions, including dividend increases. As a result, our Company will submit a Comprehensive Capital Plan to the regulators in early January. We look forward to the results of this regulatory review and believe that our Company's strong capital position and ability to generate new capital through earnings will allow us to raise our dividend in 2011.?
