IGT Announces Dividend Increase, Chinese Certification

Leading slot manufacturer International Game Technology announced that its board of directors declared a cash dividend of $ 0.09 per share on its common stock for the second quarter, a 50 percent increase compared to the dividend paid in the same quarter last year.

This marks the 41th consecutive quarter that the company has paid a dividend—the longest current streak in the gaming industry. “We are pleased to announce another significant increase in our quarterly cash dividend,” said Patti Hart, CEO of IGT. “This is a clear signal that our strategy is driving strong financial performance and that we are committed to returning capital to shareholders in an effective and judicious matter.”

The company also announced that it has received ISO 9001:2008 certification from SGS International Certification Services for its China Research and Development Office (CRDC) in Beijing.

IGT’s Quality Management Systems, along with the design, development and manufacturing processes, have successfully completed extensive external evaluation on a regular basis to ensure ongoing conformity to the international ISO standards.
