The Board of Directors of Baxter International Inc. (NYSE:BAX) today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.45 per Baxter common share. The dividend is payable on January 3, 2013 to shareholders of record as of December 7, 2012.

This represents an annual dividend rate of $1.80 per share. In July, Baxter increased its dividend rate 34 percent.

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 the company'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; and other risks identified in the company's most recent filing on Form 10-K and other SEC filings, all of which are available on the company's website. The company does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.
