On June 18, 2010, CBOE changed its organizational structure from a non-stock corporation owned by its members to a wholly owned subsidiary of a new holding company, CBOE Holdings, Inc., organized as a stock corporation owned by its stockholders. This type of organizational restructuring is sometimes referred to as a "demutualization" or "restructuring" transaction.
CBOE Holdings intends to pay regular quarterly dividends to our stockholders. On August 4, 2010, our Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per share on the company's common stock. The company has paid a quarterly dividend in each subsequent quarter. However, the decision to pay a dividend remains within the discretion of our board of directors and may be affected by various factors, including our earnings, financial condition, capital requirements, level of indebtedness and other considerations our board of directors deems relevant.
