PepsiAmericas has given details of its latest dividend payment.

The PepsiCo bottler, which posted its 2006 figures last month, said yesterday (22 February) that it will pay a quarterly dividend of US$0.13 per share of its common stock.

The dividend is set to be paid on 2 April to shareholders of record on 15 March.

In January, PepsiAmericas reported a lift in full-year sales of 6.6% to $4bn. Operating income for the year took a hit, however, from increased raw material costs, coming in at $356m, a slide from $393.4m in 2005.
