Corporate News

Lexmark's commitment to driving shareholder value is reflected in its capital allocation framework of returning more than 50 percent of free cash flow, on average, to its shareholders through dividends and share repurchases, while continuing to invest to grow and strengthen its capabilities. Since March, the company has increased its quarterly dividend and also announced three acquisitions that strengthen its business through a more advanced, comprehensive solutions portfolio.

  • Lexmark announced that it increased its quarterly dividend by 20 percent to $0.30 per share for Lexmark Class A Common Stock.
  • Lexmark made three significant acquisitions recently adding Brainware, ISYS and Nolij to its portfolio of solutions companies. These acquisitions, in addition to Perceptive Software and Pallas Athena, strengthen Lexmark's position as a unique, end-to-end solutions provider.
