PepsiAmericas has unveiled details about its quarterly dividend.

The Pepsi bottler said yesterday (27 April) that US$0.125 would be paid per common share. The dividend will be paid on 3 July to shareholders of record on 15 June, the company added.

Earlier this week, the company reported a slump in first-quarter earnings of 20.6%, pointing to higher pricing and a late Easter holiday. Net sales rose by 2.3% in the period, but global volumes fell 1.1%.

PepsiAmericas is the world's second largest Pepsi bottler, with operations in the US, Central Europe and the Caribbean. The company also manufactures, distributes and markets a portfolio of PepsiCo products.
