The board of directors of Multi-Color Corporation (Nasdaq: LABL), of Cincinnati, OH, USA, declared a three-for-two stock split effective late last week. The stock split will be effected through a 50 percent stock dividend, payable on September 17 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 31.

“On behalf of our board of directors, I am pleased to announce this stock split, which demonstrates our confidence in the continued growth of our company,” says President and CEO Frank Gerace. “We intend to maintain our historical $0.05 per share quarterly dividend which will result in additional returns to our shareholders.”

Excluding the impact of the acquisition expenses, adjusted net income increased 34 percent to $12.9 million.
