CSI Reinvests in Workforce and Infrastructure with Corporate Tax Savings
PADUCAH, Ky., March 5, 2018 - As a result of the reduced corporate tax rate effective with the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (TCJA), Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end financial technology solutions, is using its financial savings to reinvest in its employees and infrastructure.
Recognizing the opportunity brought about by the TCJA, CSI is investing a portion of its corporate tax savings with its employees. Non-executive full-time employees with the company more than 12 months will receive a one-time $1,300 cash bonus in March. Part-time and other employees with the company less than 12 months will receive a one-time cash bonus of $650 also in March. The company also stated that all eligible employees will receive an additional one-time contribution to their retirement plan.
“At CSI, we recognize the tremendous contributions that our employees make in meeting customer expectations and delivering innovative solutions,” said Steve Powless, CSI’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our board of directors realized this unique opportunity to make a special investment in our workforce, and we are excited to reward our employees for their hard work and ongoing dedication.”
The company also plans to ramp up its investments in infrastructure and facilities in fiscal 2019 just underway. CSI expects to pursue additional stock repurchases as well. The capital expenditures and stock repurchases are expected to be funded by CSI’s strong cash flow and tax savings.
“We expect our investments in CSI’s employees, new technology and infrastructure to position CSI for continued growth in 2018 and beyond,” Powless said. “Our investments in our employees recognize their long tenure at CSI and their first-class support of our customers. We also expect to add significant computing power in fiscal 2019 to support our continued growth in processing transactions for our regulatory compliance customers, and make additional investments in new products and technology to support our core bank customers. Our Board of Directors remains focused on building long-term value for our shareholders through these investments and returning a portion of CSI’s earning to shareholders through our cash dividend and stock repurchase programs.”
