The company will pay a 25 cent special dividend plus its regular 25 cent dividend on Dec. 18 to shareholders of record on Dec.3.
“Given the company’s 2012 earnings growth and capital strength, paying these dividends now is an appropriate and measured step that will benefit our shareholders,” City National President and CEO Russell Goldsmith said in statement.
Shares of City National lost 4 cents, or 0.08 percent, to close Thursday at $47.27 on the New York Stock Exchange.
