Any occurrence requiring undivided attention will be accompanied by a compelling distraction.

Delivering on our long-term commitment to enhance shareholder value, this is Devon's third consecutive annual dividend increase. We doubled the dividend in 2004, increased it by 50 per cent in 2005 and are increasing it by 50 per cent again this year. We also completed a 50-million-share stock repurchase program in 2005 and have another 50-million-share repurchase program now under way.
