Dividends

On July 25, 2012, we announced that our Board of Directors approved the initiation of a cash dividend to our shareholders. The first quarterly dividend of $0.12 per common share was paid on August 21, 2012. In August 2017, the Board increased the dividend to $0.29 per common share, equating to a 21% increase. We have more than doubled the amount of our dividend since first initiating one in fiscal 2012. All dividends are subject to Board approval.
