CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Miller Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MLR) (the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has approved the initiation of an annual cash dividend policy for its Common Stock. The Board declared the first such annual cash dividend of $0.10 per share payable on March 25, 2010 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 18, 2010.  

William G. Miller, Chairman of the Board and Co-CEO of the Company stated, "Our Board's decision to initiate an annual cash dividend policy is a demonstration of our confidence in the Company's financial strength and our commitment to building shareholder value. We have worked hard over the past few years to optimize our balance sheet and cash flows, and we are pleased to have the financial flexibility to continue investing in our business while also returning value to our shareholders through this dividend."

Future payment of annual cash dividends will be based on the Company's ability to satisfy all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements and its continued financial strength. Any future determination as to the payment of cash dividends will depend upon such factors as the Company's earnings, capital requirements, financial condition, financing agreement restrictions and other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors.
