The Sitnasuak Native Corporation Board of Directors is pleased to declare a regular dividend of $6.20 per share (or $620.00 for those with 100 shares) to all Shareholders of record as of November 15, 2017. A special Elders dividend of $500.00 per Elder has also been declared for those Shareholders who are 65 or older as of November 15, 2017. Distribution will begin on November 29, 2017.
“Our Sitnasuak family of businesses are profitable and continue to perform and grow. Our 2017 earnings fund our Shareholder dividends as well as other Shareholder benefits like scholarships, bereavement assistance, camp and home sites, heating fuel discounts, and apartment discounts. Our profitability reflects our many successes in delivering trusted and quality products and services,” said Robert “Bobby” Evans, Sitnasuak’s Board Chairman. “The 2017 dividend distribution demonstrates our commitment to all Shareholders and especially our Elders, while ensuring the financial stability of the Corporation. We wish all Shareholders, everyone and their families a safe and happy holiday season.”
The Sitnasuak dividend amount is based on a review of Corporation’s dividend policy which includes an analysis of both historical and projected financial performance. This is the sixth year that Sitnasuak has distributed an extra benefit to our Elders.
