TSYS, Synovus to pay dividend of 10 cents, 1 cent per share

It's payout time for a couple of companies headquartered in Columbus.

Global credit-card processor TSYS said it will pay a quarterly cash dividend of 10 cents per share on its TSYS common stock.

The dividend is payable April 1 to those TSYS shareholders of record at the close of business Thursday.

Synovus Financial Corp., parent company of Columbus Bank and Trust, is on the same schedule, although it will pay a single penny per share of common stock.

The regional bank, which has paid 1-cent per share for a long string of quarters, said those owning stock by Thursday will get the cash as of April 1.

The biggest payout of the local firms, however, has already come and gone, with supplemental health and life insurer Aflac issuing 37 cents per share.

That dividend was paid March 3 for those owning common stock shares as of Feb. 14.
