Corporate News

Lexmark's commitment to driving shareholder value is reflected in its capital allocation framework of returning more than 50 percent of free cash flow, on average, to its shareholders through dividends and share repurchases, while continuing to invest to grow and strengthen its capabilities. Since March, the company has increased its quarterly dividend and also announced three acquisitions that strengthen its business through a more advanced, comprehensive solutions portfolio.

Lexmark continued to garner a wide range of recognition for being a progressive, forward-thinking technology company that adds value for its customers and stakeholders.

Since last fall, Lexmark has added four significant MPS leadership designations to its services portfolio with the latest distinctions from Forrester Research, Inc. and Quocirca.
