"We are pleased to have paid our 125th consecutive monthly dividend last week and our shift to a U.S. dollar paid dividend which we announced, along with the lower costs and higher revenues, further secures our dividend which we approve and announce quarterly and has been a hallmark of our growing business. Our dividend is fixed and paid in cash or Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) shares on total shares outstanding and not market share price. Yield is determined by the purchase price of the share and has no effect on the dividend policy."For over 10 years as a public company beginning in December 2004 to our already announced first quarter dividend of the new 2016 fiscal year beginning next week, we have continued to grow our business and pay our monthly dividend despite floods, forest fires, hurricanes, severe winter storms, currency changes, government changes, the 2008 financial crisis, oil at $140 a barrel, interest rates at 7-8%, fierce competition and just about any other natural or financial disaster we have experienced during that time. Kids went to school yesterday, today and they will in the future. It's a stable business and we will continue to be the innovators and leaders in this industry. So while we continue to improve and build our business, our commitment to our shareholders, employees and communities is strong. We are developing new businesses to generate additional revenues with higher margins and look forward to fiscal 2016 with excitement. Happy New ( fiscal) Year."
