InterDigital Declares Regular Dividend Of $0.10 Per Share And Special Dividend Of $1.50 Per Share

Stocks in this article: IDCC

InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC) announced today that the company’s Board of Directors declared a special cash dividend of $1.50 per share on its common stock on December 2, 2012. The dividend is payable on December 28, 2012 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 17, 2012. The company also announced that the Board approved its regular quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share, which will be paid on December 28, 2012. In prior years, this quarterly dividend was paid on or around January 25.

“This special dividend comes at the end of a record year for InterDigital and, layered on our existing regular dividend and share repurchase plan, underscores the company’s portfolio approach to cash management. It also reflects our ongoing confidence in the strength of the business, and our ability to generate significant cash flows going forward,” said Terry Clontz, Chairman of InterDigital’s Board of Directors.

In connection with the payment of the special dividend, the conversion rate for the company’s 2.50% Senior Convertible Notes due 2016 will be adjusted. The conversion rate applicable to the notes currently is 17.3458 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the convertible notes. As a result of the special dividend, the conversion rate will be multiplied by the average closing price of the company’s common stock for the period between the December 2, 2012 declaration date and the ex-dividend date for the special dividend (expected to be December 13, 2012), and then divided by that price minus the special dividend amount of $1.50. The conversion rate adjustment will become effective immediately after 9 a.m., New York City time, on the ex-dividend date for the special dividend.
