Cognex Increases Quarterly Cash Dividend

NATICK, MA, May 5, 2010 — Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) announced today that the company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share; this represents an increase of $0.01 per share, or 20%, over the $0.05 per share dividend paid in the prior quarter. 

“The dividend increase announced today demonstrates the confidence that the Board of Directors has in Cognex’s financial strength and in our ability to continue to generate profitable growth for the remainder of the year,” said Dr. Robert J. Shillman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cognex. “We decreased our dividend in Q2 of 2009 when times were tough, and we are happy to increase it in good times like these so that we can share our success in a tangible way with our shareholders.”

The dividend announced today is payable on June 18, 2010, to all shareholders of record at the close of business on June 4, 2010. Cognex declared its first dividend in the third quarter of 2003, and to date it has paid $96 million in dividends to its shareholders.
