PENNSAUKEN, N.J., Dec. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RCM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:RCMT), a premier provider of business and technology solutions designed to enhance and maximize the operational performance of its customers through the adaptation and deployment of advanced engineering, information technology and specialty health care services, today announced that its Board of Directors declared a special cash dividend of $1.00 per share, payable on December 30, 2015 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 22, 2015.
Rocco Campanelli, President and CEO of RCM Technologies, Inc., commented: “We are excited to announce a special dividend of $1.00 per share and continue our impressive record of returning capital to our shareholders. Including an estimate of this upcoming $1.00 special dividend, the $1.00 special dividend declared in December 2012, the $2.00 special dividend declared in December 2014, the $7.5 million stock buyback initiative completed in January 2013 and approximately $2.6 million in shares we have repurchased in fiscal 2015 to date, RCM has returned approximately $61.5 million to our shareholders in a relatively short timeframe. We are optimistic about the prospects of our business on a go forward basis and we expect to continue to generate strong cash flow in 2016 and beyond.”
Kevin Miller, Chief Financial Officer, added: “Due to the favorable cash generating characteristics of RCM’s business model, the Board believes a target long-term capital structure generally in the range of 1.00x to 2.00x net debt/EBITDA will allow the Company to invest internally for profitable organic growth, consider acquisitions that are a strategic fit to RCM’s core business, and, when appropriate, return capital to shareholders as part of a comprehensive capital allocation framework that is reviewed quarterly by our Board of Directors. While we anticipate that the issuance of this dividend will cause RCM initially to exceed this long-term targeted net debt/EBITDA ratio, we also expect that we will lower our net debt/EBITDA ratio in line with this range sometime in 2016. We expect approximately $0.75 or more of the special dividend will receive the tax advantageous characterization of return of capital to shareholders.”
