DENVER; December 4, 2012 - Intrepid Potash Inc. (Intrepid) (NYSE:IPI) today announced that its board of directors has declared a special cash dividend on its common stock of $0.75 per share. The dividend is payable on December 27, 2012, to all stockholders of record at the close of business on December 17, 2012.
"This special dividend underscores the significant progress we have made on our major capital investment projects and the continuing strength of our balance sheet," stated Bob Jornayvaz, Intrepid's Executive Chairman of the Board. "Our board's decision to pay the dividend in 2012 also considered the uncertainty surrounding future personal income tax rates on qualified dividends. We have built our balance sheet and capital structure in a strong and flexible manner in order to continue investing in our business and to provide value to our stockholders."
As the largest producer of potash in the U.S., Intrepid is dedicated to the production and marketing of potash and Trio®, a product produced from langbeinite ore. Intrepid owns five active potash production facilities - three in New Mexico and two in Utah.
