RESMED INC FILES (8-K) Disclosing Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits

January 23, 2014

Item 2.02. Disclosure of Results of Operations and Financial Condition. On January 23, 2014 we issued the press release attached as Exhibit 99.1. It is incorporated into this report by reference. The press release describes the results of our operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 . Item 8.01. Other Events. On January 23, 2014 , we announced that our board of directors declared a cash dividend of US $0.25 per share of outstanding common stock. The dividend will be payable on March 19, 2014 , with a record date of February 19, 2014 . We will pay the dividend in US currency to holders of our common stock trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). We will pay the dividend to holders of CHESS Depositary Instruments (CDIs) trading on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) at an equivalent amount in Australian currency, based on the exchange rate on February 19, 2014 , and reflecting the 10:1 ratio between CDIs and NYSE shares. Because the two exchanges have different settlement and transfer procedures, the ex-dividend periods before the record date will be different for common stock and for CDIs. The ex-dividend date will be February 13, 2014 for CDI holders and February 15, 2014 for common stock holders. As a result of these differences, we have received a waiver from the ASX's settlement operating rules, which will allow us to defer processing conversions between its common stock and CDI registers from February 13, 2014 through February 19, 2014 , inclusive.
