Xyratex Ltd Declares Special $2.00 Dividend and Accelerated Quarterly Dividend

HAVANT, United Kingdom, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced that its board of directors has declared a one-time, special cash dividend of $2.00 per share. The special cash dividend will be distributed on December 31, 2012 to shareholders of record as at the close of business on December 27, 2012. 

Xyratex's board of directors has also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per common share and approved the acceleration of the dividend payable date to December 31, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on  December 27, 2012.  The quarterly dividend would otherwise have been declared in January 2013 with Xyratex's quarterly earnings results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. 

"The company's solid, debt-free balance sheet and projected cash generation allow us to pay approximately  $58 million of special dividends together with approximately $2 million of accelerated quarterly dividends from cash on hand while maintaining the flexibility to continue to invest in our business. Our board believes paying these dividends at this time will provide additional value to our shareholders," said Steve Barber, CEO of Xyratex.

The payment of any future cash dividends will be at the discretion of Xyratex's board of directors and will be dependent upon Xyratex's financial position, results of operations, available cash, cash flow, capital requirements and other factors deemed relevant by the board of directors.
