PHOENIX- Pinnacle West Capital Corporation’s (NYSE: PNW) board of directors today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.425 per share of common stock, payable on March 1, 2003, to shareholders of record on February 3, 2003.

Pinnacle West’s board in October 2002 increased the dividend by approximately 6.3 percent or $0.10 per share on an annual basis. The board’s action resulted in an indicated annual dividend of $1.70 per share, or $0.425 per share quarterly, and represented the ninth consecutive increase of this magnitude since the dividend was reinstated in 1993.

For the five-year period 1998-2002, Pinnacle West grew its dividend at an average annual rate of 7.2 percent, ranking first among U.S. electric utilities. Future growth will be dependent on a number of factors including payout ratio trends, free cash flow, and financial market conditions.
