ATLANTA, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a leading tissue processing and medical device Company focused on cardiac and vascular surgery, announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend for the first quarter 2013 of $0.025 per share of common stock outstanding. The quarterly cash dividend of $0.025 per share will be paid on March 21, 2013 to all common stockholders of record as of March 14, 2013. The ex-dividend date for the quarterly dividend is March 12, 2013.

CryoLife anticipates paying quarterly dividends in March, June, September, and December of each year.

These statements represent management's current beliefs and expectations and are forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. As such, they are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause future events to deviate from current expectations, including without limitation that the declaration of future dividends and the establishment of the per share amount, record dates, and payment dates for future dividends are subject to final determination by the Company's Board of Directors, and will be dependent upon future earnings, cash flows, financial requirements, the Board's evaluation of competing uses for available cash, and other factors.
