Diamond Hill Investment Group, Inc. Announces Special Dividend

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Diamond Hill Investment Group, Inc.  (NASDAQ: DHIL) today announced that its board of directors has approved an $8.00 per share special cash dividend to shareholders of record on December 17, 2012 payable December 21, 2012.  The company will finalize tax characterization of the dividend in February 2013 and expects a portion will be return of capital.

While this is the fifth consecutive year that the company has paid a special dividend, there can be no assurance that the company will pay a dividend in the future.  The Board of Directors and management continually review various factors to determine whether the company has capital in excess of that required for the business and the appropriate use of any excess capital.  The factors considered include the company's investment opportunities, the company's risks, and future dividend and capital gain tax rates.  Evaluating management's stewardship of capital for shareholders is a central part of our intrinsic value investment discipline that we practice for our clients.  We hold ourselves to the same standard that we look for when evaluating investments for our clients.
