One's that are giving back their IPO money. After all the $150 mln is money left over from the IPO. It is not money the NPD earned from operations. Just great IPO timing. And that only comes along once.
It's gonna be a nice New Year gift. With the 35 cents dividend earlier this year, NPD will have distributed $1.85 in 2009. Not bad considering it was trading as low as $3.50 in the first half of the year.
