On December 3, 2012, Gaming Partners International Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing a special cash dividend of $0.1825 per share, payable on December 18, 2012, to the stockholders of record at the close of business on December 10, 2012.


The Company also announced an increase in the number of shares authorized for repurchase under the Company’s existing stock repurchase program (the “Program”). The number of shares authorized for repurchase under the Program was increased to 400,000, or approximately 4.9 percent of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The remaining terms of the Program as previously adopted by the Board remain in full force and effect.


On December 3, 2012, the Company entered into a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. This plan has been established in accordance with, and as a part of, the Program. Repurchases under the Company’s 10b5-1 plan will be administered through an independent broker. The plan will cover the repurchase of shares commencing no earlier than December 15, 2012 and expiring December 14, 2013, unless terminated earlier in accordance with its terms. Repurchases will be made in accordance with SEC Rule 10b-18, which contains certain price, market volume and timing constraints.
