Capital City Bank Group, Inc. Board Of Directors Announces Quarterly Dividend

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of Capital City Bank Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CCBG) today declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $.10 per share. The cash dividend is payable on June 21, 2010, to shareowners of record as of June 7, 2010. This action represents a reduction in the quarterly dividend from $.19 per share in prior quarters.

"We recognize the importance of the dividend to our shareowners and the significance of this decision. Given the current market conditions, we believe this precautionary action is prudent and will better position the Company for the long term, while maintaining a dividend competitive with our peers," said Capital City Bank Group Chairman, President and CEO, William G. Smith, Jr.

"We have historically paid a dividend that produced an annual yield of approximately 2%. Given our stock price over the past 18 months, our dividend has been yielding approximately 5%, which is not consistent with our long-term operating philosophy. Based on a May 26, 2010, closing price of $15.04 per share, the annualized dividend yield is 2.66%," Smith added.
