Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HopFed Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: HFBC) today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of
$0.02 per share. In addition, the Company will pay a 2% stock dividend. Both the stock and cash dividends will be paid on October 18, 2011, to stockholders of record as of
October 3, 2011.
Commenting on the reduction in the cash dividend,
John Peck, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We find it necessary to adjust our cash dividend at this time. The reduction in the Company's cash dividend is due to the slow pace of economic growth both locally and nationally, reducing the Company's loan demand and our ability to generate earnings growth. By combining our cash dividend and a 2% stock dividend, the Company hopes to provide additional value to shareholders."
