Boston Private Financial Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results; Announces Dividend Increase And Share Repurchase Program

“We believe now is the time to begin returning capital to our shareholders given our outlook and confidence in our continued risk management, capital build and earnings power,” said Mr. Deutsch. “Increasing our dividend is a prudent decision which will allow us to reward shareholders while adequately funding our strategy. We will continuously evolve our dividend level while assessing other shareholder friendly transactions. We are committed to managing our capital in a hyper-efficient manner.”

In addition, on January 16, 2013, the Board of Directors also approved a share repurchase program of up to 5% of the Company’s outstanding shares. Under the program, shares may be repurchased from time to time in the open market for a two-year period.
