TI To Return More To Shareholders With A 33% Increase In Dividend And $5 Billion Of Share Buybacks

DALLAS, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today said it will increase its quarterly dividend by 33 percent, from $0.21 per share to $0.28, payable May 20, 2013, to shareholders of record on April 30, 2013.  Annualized, the new dividend will be $1.12.  Additionally, TI authorized the repurchase of an additional $5 billion of its common stock bringing the total outstanding authorization to $8.4 billion.

These increases reflect the company's ability to generate cash and management's commitment to return it to shareholders.  Over the past few years, TI has built a business model for growth and high margins with its focus on Analog and Embedded Processing semiconductors.  As a result, TI believes it can consistently convert 20-25 percent of its revenue into free cash flow* and return 100 percent of that free cash flow (less debt repayment) to shareholders. 

With today's dividend announcement, this will be the 10 th consecutive year of dividend increases.  The new dividend is contingent upon formal declaration by the Board of Directors at its regular meeting in April.  Common stock repurchases have reduced the company's outstanding shares by 36 percent since the end of 2004.

The company will host a conference call tomorrow, February 22, at 10 a.m. Central time, to discuss the details of its capital management strategy and its plans for consistent returns to shareholders.  See www.ti.com/ir for details.

* Non-GAAP; Free cash flow equals cash flow from operations minus capital expenditures.
