The dividend is payable on March 28, to stockholders of record as of March 18, 2013.

The Board of Directors also declared the regular monthly dividends of $0.105 per share for March, April and May on the $1.26 Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock, Series B (NYSE: CMOPRB).

Effective December 31, 2012 each Series B Preferred share is convertible into 0.6407 shares of common stock. Effective January 1, 2013 each Series A Preferred share is convertible into 1.6584 shares of common stock.

Any conversion requested after one or more preferred record dates within the quarter and on or before the record date for the quarterly common stock dividend will require payment to the Company of all preferred share dividends declared and paid for the corresponding quarter.
