Derivatives marketplace operator CME Groupannounced today its third-quarter dividend of $0.45 per share, the same rate it's paid for the past four quarters.
The board of directors said the quarterly dividend is payable on September 25 to holders of record at the close of business on September 10. The exchange operator paid a special dividend of $1.30 per share in December 2012.
The regular dividend payment equates to a $1.80-per-share annual dividend, yielding 2.5% based on the closing price today of CME Group's stock.
