Fastenal Company Announces Cash Dividend

WINONA, Minn., July 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Fastenal Company of Winona, MN (Nasdaq:FAST) reported its Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.25 per share to be paid in cash on August 22, 2014 to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 25, 2014.

Fastenal began paying annual dividends in 1991, semi-annual dividends in 2003, and then expanded to quarterly dividends in 2011. In 2013, we paid quarterly dividends per share of $0.10 in March, $0.20 in May, $0.25 in August, and $0.25 in November. In 2014, we paid a quarterly dividend per share of $0.25 in February, $0.25 in May, and will pay our next dividend, as noted above, in August.

Our Board of Directors intends to continue paying quarterly dividends, provided that any future determination as to payment of dividends will depend upon the financial condition and results of operations of the Company and such other factors as are deemed relevant by the Board of Directors, such as income tax rates related to dividends.
