Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On May 5, 2021, HireQuest, Inc. (the "Company") announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share of common stock. The dividend will be payable June 15, 2021 with a record date of June 1, 2021. A copy of the press release announcing the quarterly dividend is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
The information in this Item 7.01 and in Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed "filed" for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed subject to the requirements of amended Item 10 of Regulation S-K, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing. The furnishing of this information hereby shall not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of such information.
The information in this report and Exhibit 99.1 hereto may contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. All statements, other than statements of historical or current fact, are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements relating to our declaration of quarterly dividends, the financial performance of our business, and the economic recovery. Forward-looking statements are based on the current beliefs, assumptions, and expectations of management and current market conditions. There can be no assurance that future dividends will be declared, and the payment of this quarterly dividend is expressly conditioned on the Board not revoking the dividend before the payment date. The declaration of future dividends is subject to approval of the Board of Directors each quarter after its review of the Company's financial performance and cash needs. Declaration of future dividends is also subject to various risks and uncertainties, including: the Company's cash flow and cash needs; compliance with applicable law; restrictions on the payment of dividends under existing or future financing arrangements; changes in tax laws relating to corporate dividends; the deterioration in the Company's financial condition or results; and those risks, uncertainties, and other factors identified from time to time in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
