FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- (Business Wire)
National Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ:FIZZ) today confirmed that its Board of
Directors has chosen to distribute $2.55 per share to its shareholders.
“Additionally, amidst a jubilant reception of our special dividend,
requests asking to extend the record date were considered and approved
by the Board. The new record date shall be the close of business on
December 7, 2012,” stated Nick A. Caporella, Chairman and Chief
“A significant consideration for the Board’s decision to ‘advantage’ the
shareholders with current tax benefits was a commitment by our
largest shareholder to make available additional equity should the
occasion develop. The expediency by many corporations to benefit their
shareholders has created a very expensive climate for debt. We will
bypass this climate and continue with our favorable credit facilities
that are presently in place. Prudent and wise at this time...” Caporella
“A refreshing bittersweet feeling embraces this particular
dividend; one of six that totals $8.66 over the past eight years. One ‘s’
of Fortress balance sheet will go missing
for a while (albeit for a commendable cause)! Yet, the sweetness of
holiday merriment in ‘Doing the Right Thing’ – exciting many this
wonderful Christmas...makes losing that precious ‘s’ – ok!”
“Does this highly charged fiscal dilemma make you see Red?”
Caporella was asked. “Yes it does...but we continuously see red,
yellow, orange, blue, brown, pink, green, purple and more. We are
America’s Flavor Choice – We are National Beverage Corp.!” Caporella
National Beverage’s iconic brands are the genuine essence...of America.
