RF Industries (NASDAQ:RFIL) announced today that its Board of Directors has
declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per common share and has
decided to accelerate a portion of its anticipated calendar 2013 common stock
dividend payments into calendar 2012. Accordingly, RFI will pay a $0.10 per
common share dividend on December 28, 2012 to shareholders of record on

forward the payment of a portion of those dividends, which might otherwise be

strength of our business supports this payment and the Company remains fully
committed to enhancing shareholder returns. The Board will continue to review
and determine RFI's future dividend payout rate in light of the Company's
