KBW to Pay Special $2 Dividend Linked to Acquisition by Stifel

KBW Inc. (KBW), the investment bank focusing on financial-services clients, will pay a special dividend of $2 a share linked to its takeover by St. Louis-based brokerage Stifel Financial Corp. (SF)

The dividend is payable Dec. 17 to shareholders of record as of Dec. 10, the company said today in a statement. KBW’s merger agreement with Stifel, announced earlier this month, stipulates that the cash portion of the takeover payment will be reduced to reflect the special dividend.
