Here's an interesting one.

NAL Energy (NAE) is getting taken out by Pengrowth (PGH) in a deal where NAL shareholders get 0.86 shares of PGH for each NAE share. If the deal proceeds as outlined, NAL shareholders will end up with a 20% dividend increase.
The proposed business combination is expected to be accretive upon closing to Pengrowth shareholders on a funds from operation and production per share basis, and also provides NAL shareholders with a 20.4% increase in monthly dividends per share, an increase in reserves per share and exposure to a company with a longer reserve life index.


Say you owned 1000 shares of NAE. At 60 cents a share per year, that's $600 in annual dividends. After the deal, you'll own 860 shares of PGH, which pays a dividend of 84 cents a year. 860 x 0.84 = 722.4!

Marvelous :D ! Until PGH cuts the dividend after it realizes it cannot sustain the greatly increased debt load :roll:

Hi,

I don't have the official announcement, but deep in an Argus report I found that Royal Dutch Shell raised their quarterly dividend to .86 (annual = 3.44). I just received my dividend at the old rate, so this increase will be effective (their) 2012 Q1.

Their press release makes it sound like they just raised the dividend, but the dividend has been at $0.225 since last year: http://investor.walgreens.com/divhistory.cfm
(I almost posted to this thread with their last dividend declaration...)
