    Common Stock Dividends

    Dividends are paid quarterly as determined by the Board. In determining the level of the dividend, the board assesses the dividend payout as a percentage of earnings and as a percentage of cash flow from operations over a period of time. Dividends are at the discretion of the Board. In determining the dividend, the Board considers the Corporation’s financial performance, its results of operations, cash flow and needs with respect to financing ongoing operations and growth balanced against returning capital to shareholders. The board continues to focus on building sustainable earnings and cash flow growth.
