Commenting on the dividend declaration, CEO Rusty Hutson said:

"After already increasing our dividend 7% last quarter, the fact that we are increasing our dividend by a further 7%, during a period when many companies across all sectors are facing severe headwinds, emphasizes the unique nature of our business model and the value accretive nature of our acquisitive growth strategy and asset optimization. Evidenced by our exceptionally low operating costs and healthy cash margins, our company is built to operate in any price environment, but it is in this particular climate that we are able to demonstrate the true value of our focus on material and low-risk cash flow. We are wholly committed to returning that value to our shareholders in the form of reliable quarterly dividends while simultaneously maintaining a healthy balance sheet to enable us to capitalize on generational opportunities to create long-term value for shareholders. Our consistent and successful performance during what is perceived to be one of the most challenging environments both for the macro and for the sector speaks to what we can deliver in healthier times."
