Winnebago Industries announces a dividend of 31 cents per share is payable Sept. 27 to common stockholders of record as of Sept. 13. The dividend is 15% higher than the 27 cents a share offered in the previous quarter.
Higher returns indicate sales of RVs, like boats and other large outdoor rec toys, remain positive. This indicates that there is still an earnest need for many more safe, secure RV and boat storage facilities across the nation.

This dividend increase underscores our confidence in the long-term strength and trajectory of our business.
