  • The Huna Totem Board of Directors, in accordance with the Corporation’s current dividend policy, declared a total 2012 dividend distribution amount of $65,174 to shareholders of record as of December 15, 2012.

    This year’s dividend of $0.74 per share in combination with three Shareholder Settlement Trust distributions of $10.96 made earlier this year brings a total of $11.70 in total cash distributions per Huna Totem Corporation share, compared to $4.55 in 2011; an increase of $7.15 or 157%.

    Huna Totem Corporation’s current dividend policy adopted in 2011, calls for the Corporation to pay annual dividends equal to twenty-five percent of the Corporation's average annual net income for the past three years.  This policy was adopted in 2011 with the Corporation’s return to consecutive years of profitability after a decade of dividends to shareholders which exceeded the Corporation’s profitability and reduced the Corporation’s ability to fund growth. 

    This current dividend policy is intended to ensure the Corporation’s sustainability by paying for current business operations and debt service, allowing for future growth and investment opportunities, while also paying out dividends to shareholders when the Corporation is profitable.

    Checks will be mailed and direct deposit accounts credited on Thursday, December 20, 2012. Shareholders not currently signed up for direct deposit may find the form on Huna Totem Corporation’s website www.hunatotem.com or contact Amber Starbard, Shareholder Relations Manager at the Huna Totem Corporation office to enroll before the next distribution.
