, today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution of one cent ($0.01) per share and a special distribution of four cents ($0.04) per share, payable on December 27, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 17, 2012.
The Company believes it is possible for tax purposes, a portion of the distribution and any future distributions that the Board may declare in 2013 (collectively, the “Distributions”) may be treated as a return of capital to shareholders to the extent of each shareholder’s basis, while the remaining portion of the Distribution may be treated as a dividend.
The portion of the December 27, 2012 distributions that will be treated as dividends will not be determined until January 2013, as that portion is dependent upon the Company’s earnings for tax purposes for its fiscal year ending November 30, 2012 and for the month of December 2012. The final determination will be reported to recipients of the Distributions on a tax information return in early 2013.
