Download (PDF).

Transcom WorldWide S.A. (“Transcom”), the global outsourced services company, today announced that the Board will propose an ordinary dividend of €10 million, amounting to €0.135 per share, and an extraordinary dividend of €5 million, amounting to €0.07 per share, to be approved by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held on 27 May 2008.  If approved by shareholders, the dividend would be paid in June 2008.

The extraordinary dividend of €5 million is being proposed due to Transcom generating excess cash that the Company will not utilize in the short-term and is unnecessary on the balance sheet due to the Company's present capitalization.

Transcom will continue to focus on investing cash appropriately in the development of the business going forward, in particular in areas of higher margins such as near and offshore services and the debt collection business.
