About Our Dividends & Splits

Our Board of Directors approved our first-ever dividend in February 2011. Though subject to change, we currently expect to pay dividends on the last Wednesday of March, June, September and December to shareholders of record on the second Wednesday of these months.

The payment of future dividends, if any, will be determined by our Board of Directors in light of existing business conditions, including our earnings, financial condition and requirements, restrictions in financing agreements and other factors deemed relevant by our Board of Directors.
