These are the key ingredients that allow us to help people live a full life all over the world. In doing so, we are also well positioned to grow as a company for many years to come.

For more than 95 years, we've consistently rewarded investors with quarterly dividend payments. For the 48th consecutive year, we've again announced an increase to that payout. Our 2020 dividend payouts will be 36 cents per share – marking a 12.5% increase.

Our latest increase also maintains our status on the prestigious S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index, which recognizes companies who have raised their dividend payout for at least 25 years.

Global players on the Index have performed consistently over the decades and our diverse businesses – in nutrition, diagnostics, medical device and established pharmaceuticals – have helped us do the same. We’ve delivered $44 billion in cash to shareholders during the last 15 years.
