DividendThe Company today also announced a $0.225 per common share quarterly dividend. The dividend is payable May 16, 2013, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 6, 2013. "Due to the strength of our underlying businesses, West Corporation generates significant free cash flow. We expect to generate $180-$220 million in free cash flow this year. Our expectation is to return some portion of our free cash flow to shareholders each year through a regular quarterly dividend," said Paul Mendlik, CFO. "We expect to use the remaining free cash flow to reduce leverage and fund acquisitions to accelerate growth. Our goal is to reduce net leverage to less than 4x adjusted EBITDA in less than 24 months through free cash flow generation and EBITDA growth."
