Jay also recommended that the dividend be set at $48.2 million.
Director Anderson explained that there was a 12.6% increase in top line sales and a 16% increase in the presented dividend over last year. He explained that we strive for a larger growth in distribution vs. sales by continuing to rigorously managing costs.
He also informed the Commission that this is the first time since the distribution formula was modified 5 years ago that we will be able to distribute more to Public Schools and the Permanent Building fund over the 2008 distributed amounts. Also, we have now eclipsed the $600,000,000 mark for money distributed to our beneficiaries since inception.
Commissioner Fisher makes a motion to declare the dividend be set at $48.2 million for FY13. Commissioner Keyes seconds the motion. The vote was unanimous for approval and the dividend was set at $48.2 million.
Director Anderson reminds the Commission that the next Commission meeting is set for July 16 in Boise to be followed by the dividend check presentation to the Governor in his office after the meeting.
There being no other business to discuss, Commissioner Fisher moved to adjourn the meeting. Seconded by Commissioner Rehder and the vote being unanimous, the meeting was adjourned.
