17:04 EDTJSTJinpan announces change from semi-annual to quarterly dividends
Zhiyuan Li, CEO of Jinpan, commented: "We are pleased to continue our cash dividend for the ninth consecutive year. Dividends that will be distributed in December 2012 and in 2013 will total 16c per common share, which represents a 14% increase over dividends of 14c per common shares that we paid in each of 2010, 2011 and from January to November of 2012. We decided to pay a special dividend in December 2012 so investors can maximize the value of their proceeds prior to any potential tax increase on dividends in 2013. Our decision to begin paying dividends quarterly reflects our confidence in our ability to generate earnings in both prosperous and challenging times, our ongoing commitment to return value to shareholders, and our optimism about the future of Jinpan as we prepare to make operational our fourth China-based manufacturing facility in Guilin."
