Specialty-paper maker Neenah Paper  announced yesterday its third-quarter dividend of $0.20 per share, a 33% increase over the $0.15 per-share payout made last quarter, and comes quickly on the heels of a 25% dividend hike it made with the first-quarter payout.

The board of directors said the quarterly dividend is payable on Sep. 3 to the holders of record at the close of business on Aug. 15.  Neenah has paid a dividend every year since 2005.

The regular dividend payment equates to an $0.80-per-share annual dividend, yielding 2.6% based on the closing price of Deere's stock on May 30.
