WESTMINSTER, Colorado , April 27, 2022 (press release) –

 Ball Corporation's (NYSE: BLL) board of directors today declared a cash dividend of 20 cents per share, payable June 15, 2022, to shareholders of record as of June 1, 2022. In addition, the company today announced that it is changing its ticker symbol to BALL, effective at the start of trading on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.

Since the company's initial public offering in 1972, Ball stock has traded under the ticker symbol BLL—four letter ticker symbols were previously unavailable. To celebrate our 50th anniversary as a public company and to ensure the BALL ticker represents our 142-year old company, we are excited to change our ticker effective May 10. The transition will be seamless and coordinated through the New York Stock Exchange and the company's shareholder recordkeeper and transfer agent, Computershare.
