<p><span class="xn-location">ATLANTA</span>, <span class="xn-chron">April 28</span> /CNW/ -- The board of directors of AGL Resources (NYSE:   AGL) yesterday declared a quarterly dividend of <span class="xn-money">$0.44</span> per share on the company's common stock. The dividend will be paid <span class="xn-chron">June 1, 2010</span> to shareholders of record at the close of business on <span class="xn-chron">May 14, 2010</span>. This marks the 250th consecutive quarterly dividend the company has paid since 1948.</p>
<p/>
<p>The company also announced that at its annual meeting on <span class="xn-chron">April 27</span>, shareholders approved an amendment to company bylaws to eliminate the classification of the board of directors, which conforms to the amendment to the company's articles of incorporation approved by the shareholders at the 2009 annual meeting. As a result, beginning with the 2010 annual meeting, directors with expiring terms will be elected to one-year terms. By 2012, all multi-year terms of current board members will have expired, and all directors will be elected annually.</p>
<p/>
<p>Shareholders also re-elected Sandra N. Bane, Thomas D. Bell, Jr. and Dean R. O'Hare as directors, and they will hold office for one-year terms expiring at the annual meeting in 2011, as specified in the newly approved amendment. The terms of four current directors - Arthur E. Johnson, James A. Rubright, John W. Somerhalder II and Bettina M. Whyte - will continue until the 2011 annual meeting. The terms of five current members - Charles C. Crisp, Wyck A. Knox, Jr., Dennis M. Love, Charles H. "Pete" McTier and Henry C. Wolf - will continue until the 2012 annual meeting.</p>
<p/>
<p>The company also announced that, in accordance with company bylaws, long-time board members D. <span class="xn-person">Raymond Riddle</span> and Felker W. Ward, Jr., after the completion of their current term at yesterday's annual meeting, no longer are eligible to serve as active directors, since each has attained his 75th birthday.</p>
<p/>
<p>"On behalf of the AGL Resources Board of Directors, I would like to thank Raymond and Felker for their long-time service and dedicated oversight of AGL Resources," said Somerhalder, company chairman, president and chief executive officer.</p>
