Microsoft Corp. has announced its latest quarterly shareholder dividends. On Tuesday, the company's Board of Directors announced a quarterly dividend of $0.68 per share. This is a 10% (6 cents) increase above the dividend given last quarter.
According to the notice, the dividend will be paid on December 8, 2022, while shareholders of records will get it on November 17, 2022. As for the ex-dividend data, it is set for November 16, 2022.
Microsoft also put a date on its 2022 Annual Shareholders Meeting. That will go ahead on December 13, 2022. The company says any shareholder at the close of business on October 12, 2022 (the record date) can vote their shares.
As always, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will host the Annual Shareholders Meeting, while executive president and chief financial officer Amy Hood will also host. Other hosts during the meeting will be vice chair and president Brad Smith, as well as John W. Thompson, Microsoft's lead independent director.
Since taking the helm of Microsoft in 2014, CEO Satya Nadella has steered the company on a course of cloud-first and mobile-first. The strategy moved Microsoft from a muddled approach of trying to balance consumer and enterprise products the company had previously been on.
Since then, Microsoft has been thriving and passing milestones of success. From surpassing $100 billion annual revenue for the first time to becoming the first trillion-dollar company. Cloud and the Azure brand have driven the ongoing success.
Earlier this month, I reported on the Microsoft Cloud division being on course to take $100 billion in revenue this year.
