Wyeth Announces Increase in Common Stock Dividend

MADISON, N.J., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At a meeting of its Board of Directors, held today, Wyeth (NYSE: WYE) declared an increase in its common stock dividend.

A dividend of thirty cents ($0.30) per share on the outstanding shares of common stock was declared payable on December 1, 2008 to stockholders of record at the close of business on November 13, 2008. This quarterly rate represents a 7.1 percent increase per share from the previous quarter ($0.28).

Wyeth's goal is to maintain financial flexibility to allow for future growth opportunities while also providing value to its shareholders.
