Chief Executive Mark Vergnano said the company sees continued strength across the three segments. He also said 2018 will be a great year with adjusted EBITDA expected to be between $1.7 and $1.85 billion.
Vergnano also announced a five-times increase in quarterly dividend and $500 million share repurchase plan, extending through through the end of 2020.
