AMSTERDAM-- Heineken NV, the world's third-largest brewer, has raised its dividend by 24% after net profit rose 11% last year, helped by robust sales of its higher-margin premium beers.

The Amsterdam-based brewer, whose brands include Heineken, Amstel and Sol, reported a profit of EUR1.52 billion euros ($1.72 billion), up from EUR1.36 billion a year earlier. Revenue rose slightly by 0.1% to EUR21.2 billion.

Heineken declared a dividend of EUR1.10 a share, up from EUR0.89 last year.
