Additionally, the Board of Directors has today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share, which will have a record date of May 21, 2013, and be payable on June 18, 2013. The dividend will be paid in U.S. currency to holders of ResMed's common stock trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Holders of CHESS Depositary Instruments (CDIs) trading on the Australian Securities Exchange will receive an equivalent amount in Australian currency, based on the exchange rate on the record date, and reflecting the 10:1 ratio between CDIs and NYSE shares. Because the two exchanges have different settlement and transfer procedures, the ex-dividend periods before the record date will be different for common stock and for CDIs. The ex-dividend date will be May 15, 2013 for CDI holders and May 17, 2013 for common stock holders. As a result of these differences, ResMed has received a waiver from the ASX's settlement operating rules, which will allow ResMed to defer processing conversions between its common stock and CDI registers from May 15, 2013 through May 21, 2013, inclusive.

Operating profit for the March quarter was $96.1 million, cash flow from operations was $107.0 million, while gross margin was 62.4%, all demonstrating excellent operating performance.

"We are confident we have the right product pipeline for the future. We will be launching an important and exciting new mask this quarter, and expect to launch an additional mask later this calendar year. Finally, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new product today: VPAP™ COPD. The VPAP COPD is the first and only home bilevel cleared by the FDA specifically for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), giving patients and payors a weapon in the fight to keep COPD patients out of the hospital. We have also developed new ClimateLineMAX™Oxy tubing that connects between the humidifier and mask, with an oxygen line input next to the VPAP COPD device, enhancing comfort and ease of use. Both of these products will improve the lives of patients suffering from this debilitating and costly chronic disease."
