ENTEGRIS INITIATES QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

BILLERICA, Mass., October 18, 2017 - Entegris , Inc. ( NasdaqGS: ENTG), a leading specialty materials provider, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved an initial quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per share to be paid on November 22, 2017 to shareholders of record on the close of business on November 1, 2017.
