MILWAUKEE, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Johnson Controls, Inc. (NYSE: JCI), a global diversified company in the buildings and automotive industries, today approved a 5.5% increase in the company's quarterly cash dividend, to $0.19 per common share from $0.18 per common share. The dividend is payable December 28, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 7, 2012.

The new indicated annual dividend is $0.76 per share, up from $0.72 per share.

The company noted that due to potential tax law changes, the traditional January dividend payable date was changed to December for this year only.

"The increase in our dividend is a reflection of our commitment to providing value to our shareholders, our financial performance and the continued growth of our company," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen A. Roell.

Johnson Controls has paid consecutive dividends since 1887.
