NEWARK, Ohio, Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Park National Corporation's (Park) (NYSE Amex:PRK) Board of Directors today declared a $0.94 per common share quarterly cash dividend, payable on December 7, 2012 to common shareholders of record as of November 23, 2012. The board also reported it plans to announce financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012 on October 29, 2012.

Today, management reviewed with the Board of Directors details pertaining to a loan relationship that may require the recording of a charge-off of up to $13.0 million (and corresponding loan loss provision).
