Abstract:

KLA-Tencor Increases Quarterly Dividend Level To $0.25 Per Share From $0.15 Per Share

Milpitas, CA | Posted on July 13th, 2010

This increase is expected to take effect beginning with KLA-Tencor's quarterly dividend to be declared in August 2010. This represents a 67% increase compared to the prior quarterly dividend and is the second dividend increase since KLA-Tencor first instituted its dividend in April 2005.

"KLA-Tencor's strong cash flows and solid balance sheet provide us the financial flexibility to return significant cash to our shareholders while also providing the capacity to fuel our growth initiatives," said Rick Wallace, president and chief executive officer of KLA-Tencor.

"We remain committed to increasing shareholder value through executing our strategic objectives of customer focus, growth, operations excellence, and talent development," Wallace added. "This increase in the level of the dividend reflects our confidence in the outlook for KLA-Tencor and our commitment to rewarding our shareholders for their continued investment."

This announcement and other news regarding KLA-Tencor will be discussed later today, July 13, 2010, at the company's annual SEMICON West analyst briefing at the Westin San Francisco Market Street Hotel, with a live webcast beginning at 12:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The live webcast can be accessed through the Investors page of the KLA-Tencor web site at ir.kla-tencor.com/.
