McDONALD'S ANNOUNCES 70th CONSECUTIVE QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

 OAK BROOK, Ill., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD) announced today the declaration of the 70th consecutive quarterly cash dividend on its common stock.
 This dividend of 10.75 cents per common share will be payable on Sept. 17, 1993 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on Aug. 31.
 Although McDonald's per share dividend amount is modest, it is important for investors to remember that total return to investors is comprised of two parts: market price appreciation and dividends. The compound annual total return realized by McDonald's common shareholders for the ten-year period ending June 30, 1993, was 19 percent. This compared favorably with 15 percent for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 14 percent for the Standard & Poor's 500.
 McDonald's Corporation common stock is listed on the following U.S. exchanges: New York, Chicago, and Pacific Stock; and on these exchanges outside of the U.S.: Toronto, Canada; Paris, France; Frankfurt and Munich, Germany; Tokyo, Japan; and Zurich, Geneva and Basel, Switzerland.
