Pernod Ricard has said it will increase its cash dividend to shareholders for the current financial year. The interim cash dividend of 61 euro cents will be paid on 7 July.
The French drinks company cut its payout last year as it was hit by the global economic crisis. Best known for making Ricard pastis, the distiller has seen its profits rebound in the first three months of this year.
It is due to release its annual results at the start of September.
