CANADIAN BANC CORP. MONTHLY DIVIDEND DECLARATION FOR CLASS A & PREFERRED SHARE
Canadian Banc Corp. will pay a monthly distribution of 8.833 cents for each Class A share and 4.542 cents for each preferred share. Distributions are payable on Nov. 8, 2019, to shareholders on record as at Oct. 31, 2019.
Under the distribution policy announced in September, 2013, the monthly dividend payable on the Class A shares is determined by applying a 10-per-cent annualized rate on the volume-weighted average market price (VWAP) of the Class A shares over the last three trading days of the preceding month. As a result, Class A shareholders of record on Oct. 31, 2019, will receive a dividend of 8.833 cents per share based on the VWAP of $10.60, payable on Nov. 8, 2019. The yield will remain stable at 10.00 per cent (based on the VWAP) under this distribution policy.
Preferred shareholders will receive prime plus 1.50 per cent, with a minimum rate of 5.00 per cent.
Since inception, Class A shareholders have received a total of $15.33 per share and preferred shareholders have received a total of $7.61 per share, inclusive of this distribution, for a combined total of $22.94.
The company invests in a portfolio of six publicly traded Canadian banks as follows: Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, National Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Nova Scotia and Toronto-Dominion Bank. Shares held within the portfolio are expected to range between 5 per cent to 20 per cent in weight but may vary at any time. To generate additional returns above the dividend income earned on the portfolio, the company engages in a selective covered call writing program.
