MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio - The Progressive Corporation (NYSE:PGR), known for its auto insurance products and customer-centric tools like Name Your Price and Snapshot, has declared an annual dividend of $0.75 per share and a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share.

The company said that the board's decision to set the annual dividend at $0.75 reflects the company's assessment of its capital needs, ensuring that Progressive remains well-positioned to continue its operations effectively while rewarding its shareholders.

A few key dates:

  • January 18, 2024, is the ex-dividend date, which is the last day for investors to own shares and qualify for the upcoming dividend payments.
  • The record date falls on January 19, 2024, determining which shareholders are eligible for the dividend distribution.
  • Payment of both the annual and quarterly dividends will occur on January 26, 2024.

Moreover, Progressive has announced that shareholders recorded by March 15, 2024, will be eligible to vote at the company's Annual Meeting scheduled for May 10, 2024.
