Cash Dividend Increased 8% to $0.27 Per Share
PADUCAH, Ky. – (July 12, 2021) – Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI) announced that its Board of Directors approved an increase in the quarterly cash dividend, marking the 50th consecutive year of increased cash dividends. The Board approved an 8.0% increase to $0.27 per share in CSI’s quarterly cash dividend. The dividend is payable on Sept. 24, 2021, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on Sept. 1, 2021. The quarterly dividend increased from $0.25 per share and represents an indicated annual dividend rate of $1.08 per share on the new quarterly rate of $0.27 per share.
“We are pleased to announce our 50th consecutive year of increased cash dividends paid to shareholders,” stated Executive Chairman Steven A. Powless. “CSI is one of the few public companies that has increased its cash dividend annually for half a century. Over the past 10 years, our cash dividend has grown at a compounded rate of 15.9%, and our total return to shareholders has averaged more than 21% annually. We believe these records highlight our focus on growing shareholder value and CSI’s long track record of financial performance.
“CSI reported its 21st consecutive year of increased revenues and 24th consecutive year of increased net income in fiscal 2021. We continued this record by reporting higher revenues and net income for our first fiscal quarter of 2022. We expect to report continued growth in revenues and net income in fiscal 2022 based on new banks coming online for core services in our Enterprise Banking Group, and increased demand for our products and services from our Business Solutions Group. We remain focused on leveraging our strong financial position and cash flow to invest in CSI’s technology, infrastructure and people to support our continued growth,” Powless concluded.
