TAINAN, Taiwan, June 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Himax Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:HIMX) ("Himax" or "Company"), a supplier and fabless manufacturer of advanced display drivers and other semiconductor products, today declared a cash dividend of 25 cents per ADS, or 12.5 cents per ordinary share, for the year of 2012.

The cash dividend is expected to be paid on July 31, 2013 to all the shareholders of record as of July 19, 2013. The ADS book will be closed for issuance and cancellation from July 12, 2013 to July 19, 2013. Himax's 2013 dividend is based on its performance for FY2012. Typically, Himax pays out its yearly dividend at approximately the middle of its current calendar year based on the Company's previous year's financial performance.

"Since our IPO in 2006, we have remained committed to a dividend policy," began Mr. Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax Technologies, Inc. "The Himax dividend is based on our prior year's profitability. The payout ratio and yield of our dividend is compared to those of other dividend paying companies in our sector which we work to maintain our high competitive standards. Due to significant profitability improvement in 2012, Himax increases cash dividend from 6.3 cents per ADS in 2012 to 25 cents per ADS in 2013. The high payout ratio demonstrates our continued support of our shareholder base and long standing profitability."
