BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS) today announced that its board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of $0.23 per share, payable on January 15, 2016, to holders of record on January 2, 2016.
The Company's 2.0% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes include antidilutive protection that, in the event of certain payments of common dividends, provides for an increase in the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion. The dividend payment in January likely will not trigger this antidilutive adjustment. Subsequent declaration and payment of dividends on HealthSouth common stock may require an adjustment.
HealthSouth is one of the nation's largest providers of post-acute healthcare services, offering both facility-based and home-based post-acute services in 33 states and Puerto Rico through its network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, home health agencies, and hospice agencies. HealthSouth can be found on the Web at www.healthsouth.com.
