Johnson Controls International plc (JCI) will lower its quarterly dividend from $0.29 to $0.25 per share following it's merger earlier this year with Tyco International and the Adient separation (October 31st).

The quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.25 per share will be payable on Jan. 6, 2017, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on Dec. 14, 2016. Johnson Controls has paid a consecutive dividend since 1887.
