TI Returns More Cash To Shareholders With 7% Dividend Increase

DALLAS, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today said it will increase its quarterly cash dividend by 7 percent, from $0.28 per share to $0.30, or $1.20 annualized.  The higher dividend will be payable November 18, 2013, to stockholders of record on October 31, 2013, contingent upon formal declaration by the Board of Directors at its regular meeting in October.   

This latest dividend increase – the second in 2013 – is an outgrowth of TI's capital management strategy.  TI's business model, with its focus on analog and embedded processing semiconductors, allows the company to consistently generate cash and to return cash to shareholders through a combination of dividends and share repurchases.  In total, TI has raised its quarterly dividend 43 percent in 2013.

TI has a proven track record of returning cash to its shareholders.  Over the past 10 years, the company has increased the dividend every year, and its share repurchases have reduced its outstanding share count by 36 percent at an average price per share of less than $30.
