IRVINE, California, August 2, 2011 - Resources Global Professionals, a leading multinational provider of professional services and the operating subsidiary of Resources Connection, Inc. (NASDAQ: RECN), announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a $0.01 per share (25%) increase in its quarterly cash dividend to $0.05 per share. The increased dividend will be payable on September 22, 2011 to all shareholders of record on August 25, 2011.
"The significant cash generation inherent in our business model allows us to increase our quarterly dividend while retaining enough capital to take advantage of growth opportunities as they arise," said Tony Cherbak, chief operating officer.
On an annualized basis, at the Company's recent stock price, this dividend represents a dividend yield of approximately 1.5% and anticipates cash usage of approximately $9.2 million per annum based upon the current shares outstanding.
"The increase in the quarterly dividend per share of $0.01 reflects the Board's confidence in the financial strength of the Company," said Bob Pisano, lead independent director of the Company's Board of Directors. "Combined with the Company's on-going stock repurchase plan, we believe this dividend increase signifies the Company's intent to return capital to shareholders on a regular basis."
