President and CEO Tamara Gurney of Mission Valley Bancorp (parent company of Mission Valley Bank) announced today a cash dividend of $0.10 per share, a $0.025 increase from the prior dividend issued in November 2016 on its outstanding common stock.
The dividend was approved by the Board of Directors on October 31, 2017 and will be payable on or about December 15, 2017 to common shareholders of record as of November 30, 2017.
“The issuance of this, our third cash dividend to our common shareholders, reflects Mission Valley’s continuing strong performance and optimism toward the future,” Gurney said. “The bank’s strong capital position and robust earnings have served to enhance shareholder value and allowed us this opportunity to reward our shareholders.”
Since the bank’s inception 16 years ago, the company has issued four stock splits, followed by its first cash dividend to common shareholders in early 2015.
“Our directors recognize the importance of capital planning coupled with an appropriate dividend strategy,” Gurney said. “With the bank’s continuing steady performance throughout the year, our Board felt an increase in the dividend was appropriate.”
