The board of directors said the quarterly dividend is payable on Oct. 3 to the holders of record at the close of business on Sept. 17. It also said the distribution won't undermine its ability to keep performing as it is or to "meet its undertakings when due."

The regular dividend payment equates to a $0.68-per-share annual dividend, yielding 3.7% based on the closing price today of Ituran's stock.
