TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- AlarmForce Industries Inc. (TSX:AF) announces today that its Board of Directors have declared a special dividend of $0.60 per share payable on May 20, 2014 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on April 30, 2014.
Anthony Pizzonia, interim President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We believe this special dividend is the best utilization of the company's strong cash position.

For Canadian resident shareholders, this dividend is designated as an "eligible dividend" for purposes of the enhanced dividend tax credit rules contained in the Income Tax Act (Canada), and any corresponding provincial and territorial tax legislation.
