“We are pleased with our 2010 financial results, which were derived from strong sales growth, stability in margins and continuing focus on cost containment,” said Jeffrey Siegel, chairman, president and CEO. “We achieved these results through careful execution of our strategy during an uncertain and challenging period for the global economy. Given our positive outlook for 2011 and the company’s strong financial condition, we have decided to resume paying cash dividends on the company's common stock.”
