MIDDLETOWN, Conn., Dec. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omega Flex, Inc. (Nasdaq:OFLX) announced today that at its meeting on December 8, 2010, the company's board of directors unanimously voted not to issue a dividend to the shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2010. In December 2009, the company issued a special dividend of $2.00 per share, which was paid to obtain the then current favorable tax treatment on dividends and as a result of the company's favorable cash position. While the current debate in Washington has created uncertainty on the future tax regimes that will be in place in 2011 and beyond, the board has elected to retain and build the company's current cash position to take advantage of possible strategic opportunities in the near term. The company has fully repaid its existing financing line of credit, and has no long-term debt. With expected cash generation in 2011, these actions will position the company for strong growth in the future.
