GLENTEL Inc. increases its quarterly dividend

BURNABY, BC, Jan. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - January 2, 2013 - GLENTEL Inc.'s (TSX: GLN) 
Board of Directors is pleased to announce the declaration of a quarterly 
dividend in the amount of $0.125 per share, for shareholders of record on 
Thursday, January 10, 2013, payable on Thursday, January 24, 2013. 
"We are especially pleased to announce a dividend increase of 2.5 cents per 
share compared to quarterly dividends paid in 2012," stated Thomas Skidmore, 
GLENTEL's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The declared dividend will 
increase the previous quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share to $0.125 per 
share. The dividend increase recognizes GLENTEL's consistent growth in sales 
and profitability, as well as anticipated net earnings contributions in 2013 
from our recent acquisitions in the United States and Australia. The Board 
intends to share the success of the company primarily through the declaration 
of quarterly dividends. In 2013 and beyond, special dividends will not be 
declared annually, but rather may be declared on an extraordinary basis, from 
time to time." 
Unless otherwise stated, dividends paid by GLENTEL Inc. to Canadian residents 
are "eligible dividends" as defined by the Canadian Income Tax Act and 
corresponding provincial legislation.
