Baxter Declares Quarterly Dividend

DEERFIELD, Ill. --(Business Wire)--

The Board of Directors of Baxter International Inc. (NYSE:BAX) today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.52 per Baxter common share. The dividend is payable on October 1, 2014 to shareholders of record as of September 5, 2014.

In May, Baxter increased its dividend by six percent, bringing the annual dividend rate to $2.08 per diluted share and maintaining a dividend payout ratio of approximately 40 percent.

Baxter International Inc., through its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures and markets products that save and sustain the lives of people with hemophilia, immune disorders, infectius diseases, kidney disease, trauma, and other chronic and acute medical conditions. As a global, diversified healthcare company, Baxter applies a unique combination of expertise in medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology to create products that advance patient care worldwide.


This release includes forward-looking statements concerning Baxter's dividend. The statements are based on assumptions about many important factors, including the following, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements: continued strength in the company's financial position, including cash flows; future decisions of the board of directors of the company to continue payments to shareholders in the form of a dividend on a quarterly or other basis relative to alternative uses of funds; the impact of the planned separation of Baxter's biopharmaceutical and medical products businesses; and other risks identified in the company's most recent filing on Form 10-K and other SEC (News - Alert) filings, all of which are available on Baxter's website. Baxter does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.
