The ex-dividend date, the deadline by which investors must purchase the stock to receive the forthcoming dividend, is set for June 23, 2023.

A company's dividend payout can be seen as a reflection of its financial health and its earnings distribution policy. The increase in Omega Flex's dividend payout signals strong financial performance and confidence in its future earnings prospects.
The ex-dividend date is a key factor to note for potential investors. This date is typically set several business days before the record date to ensure all transactions executed on or after this date are settled before the record date.

Only those who purchase the stocks before the ex-dividend date will be entitled to receive the dividends.
In Omega Flex's case, the ex-dividend date of June 23, 2023, means that investors who purchase the stock on or after this date won't receive the dividend of $0.33 per share scheduled for July 7, 2023. Those interested in receiving this dividend need to act before the ex-dividend date.
