Republic Bancorp, Inc. Declares Special Common Stock Cash Dividend

Stocks in this article: RBCAA

Republic Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: RBCAA) (“Republic” or the “Company”), parent company of Republic Bank & Trust Company and Republic Bank, announced today that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has approved a one-time special cash dividend of $1.10 per share on Class A Common Stock and $1.00 per share on Class B Common Stock. The special cash dividend will be payable December 21, 2012 to shareholders of record as of November 30, 2012.

In addition, the Board also declared the Company’s regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.165 per share on Class A Common Stock and $0.15 per share on Class B Common Stock. The regular quarterly dividend payment will be payable January 18, 2013 to shareholders of record as of December 21, 2012.

“As we approach the end of back-to-back record years, I am extremely pleased to reward our loyal shareholders with a special cash dividend in addition to our regular quarterly dividend,” said Steve Trager, Republic’s Chairman and CEO. “This special dividend is not only a reward for our past successes, but also represents our confidence in the Company’s future prospects. Given our strong capital levels and the possible significant increases in tax rates for 2013 as we approach the U.S. Government’s ‘fiscal cliff,’ it is an opportune time to provide this special dividend distribution to our shareholders. After this special dividend, our capital ratios will continue to be very strong and the Company will remain well-positioned to support continued organic balance sheet growth and expansion through acquisitions, should opportunities arise. We remain humble in our success, yet unwavering in our outlook for the future. As always, we remain steadfast in our slogan ‘ We were here for you yesterday. We are here for you today. We will be here for you tomorrow,’” concluded Trager.
