Fulton Financial Corporation Declares and Accelerates Payment of Quarterly Cash Dividend

LANCASTER, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/10/12 -- Fulton Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: FULT) will pay a quarterly cash dividend of eight cents per share on its common stock on December 27, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 20, 2012.

"Fulton Financial has historically announced a quarterly cash dividend in December that is paid in January of the following year," said R. Scott Smith, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer. "Given the continued federal fiscal discussions and the uncertainty around the tax treatment of dividends in 2013, we decided to accelerate the payment of the January 2013 quarterly cash dividend into the fourth quarter of 2012."
