Dec 04, 2015, 16:15 ET from Leidos Holdings, Inc.

RESTON, Va., Dec. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: LDOS) announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.32 per outstanding share of common stock.  The cash dividend is payable on December 30, 2015 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 15, 2015. 

In March 2015, the Company announced a change in its fiscal year-end from the Friday nearest the end of January to the Friday nearest the end of December.  As a result of this change, Leidos anticipates future quarterly dividends to be paid on or about the 30th day of the last month of each calendar quarter, one month earlier than previously paid, beginning with the quarterly dividend announced today.

The timing, declaration, amount and payment of any future dividends is within the discretion of the Company's board of directors and will depend on many factors, including available cash, estimated cash needs, earnings, financial condition, operating results, capital requirements, as well as limitations in contractual agreements, applicable law, regulatory constraints, industry practice and other business considerations that the board of directors considers relevant.  There can be no assurance that dividends in the future will be equal or similar in amount to the amounts described in this press release or that the board of directors will not decide to suspend or discontinue the payment of cash dividends in the future.
