The Ensign Group, Inc. Increases Quarterly Dividend by 8.3% to $0.065 Per Share and Accelerates Payment Date

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Dec 4, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- The Ensign Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENSG), the parent company of the Ensign(TM) group of skilled nursing, rehabilitative care services, hospice care, assisted living and urgent care companies, today announced that its board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.065 per share of Ensign common stock, payable on or before December 28, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 17, 2012.

"The increased dividend is consistent with our improved earnings, strong cash flow and additional growth in 2012," commented Ensign President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Christensen.
