The Board of Directors of IDT Corporation (NYSE:IDT) today declared a
special dividend of $0.64 per share of Class A and Class B common stock.
“IDT has declared a special dividend of $0.64 today in recognition of
our liquid balance sheet following the sale of our stake in Fabrix
Systems in October and anticipated capital requirements,” said IDT’s
Chief Executive Officer, Shmuel Jonas. “Today’s announcement follows a
$0.68 special dividend paid by the company in November. We are fortunate
to be well positioned to return proceeds from the Fabrix sale to our
stockholders even as we continue to invest in long term growth
initiatives in our core telecommunications and payments business.”
As of October 31, 2014, IDT reported $183.3 million in unrestricted
cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities and no long term debt.
The special dividend declared today will be paid on or about January 23,
2015 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on January
15, 2015. The ex-dividend date will be January 13, 2015.
The distribution will be treated as a return of capital for tax purposes.
