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.

January dividend payable date was changed to December for this year only.

value to our shareholders, our financial performance and the continued growth
of our company," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen A. Roell.
