MedQuist Announces Declaration of $2.75 per share Dividend on Common Stock
Date:7/14/2008

MOUNT LAUREL, July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedQuist Inc. (Pink Sheets: MEDQ) today announced that its board of directors declared a dividend of $2.75 per share on MedQuist's common stock. The dividend will be paid on August 4, 2008 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on July 25, 2008.

Newcastle Partners, L.P., along with other holders of MedQuist's common stock, have filed a shareholder derivative lawsuit in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, seeking, among other things, to enjoin the payment of a substantial dividend. Though the court denied Newcastle's request for a temporary restraining order enjoining the declaration of the dividend, it has set July 31, 2008 as a date for a hearing regarding a preliminary injunction enjoining a substantial dividend. If the court issues the requested injunctive relief and the dividend declared by the board is enjoined, it will be paid on the first practicable business day following the lifting or expiration of the injunction.
