MGP Ingredients Board Declares Dividend

ATCHISON, Kan., Aug. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of MGP Ingredients, Inc. (Nasdaq:MGPI) today declared a dividend of 5 cents ($0.05) per share on the company's common stock. The dividend is payable on October 6, 2010 to stockholders of record as of September 15, 2010.

"The authorization of a dividend at this time is reflective of MGPI's solid financial footing and the board's confidence in the company's strategic growth initiatives," said Board Chairman John Speirs. "As previously announced, MGPI's earnings performance in fiscal 2010 represented a significant and remarkably rapid positive turnaround compared to the prior fiscal year's net loss. We view this as the start of new era of opportunity and success for the company under a reconfigured business model that focuses on providing high value products to a core group of customers in the branded consumer packaged goods industry. Similar to today's dividend declaration, any future dividends will be determined by the board based on the company's financial results and condition."
