WAINWRIGHT, AK — The Olgoonik Corporation Board of Directors (BOD) declared a 2021 shareholder dividend, payable through the Olgoonik Settlement Trust, at the quarterly meeting on March 25, 2021. In declaring a $13/share dividend by a resolution that received full support from every Board member, the BOD again made special mention of COVID-19 impacts on Olgoonik’s shareholder community, similar to 2020.
The BOD adopted a dividend policy in 2019 that uses a revenue-based formula to determine a sustainable dividend amount each year. Based on averaged revenue from 2018, 2019, and 2020, the dividend policy formula would have set the 2021 dividend at $12/share. Through member discussion and consensus, the 2021 dividend resolution to justify the increase from $12/share to $13/share included a clause that reads, “The Board of Directors recognizes that shareholders may need additional funds to bear the costs of exigencies created by the ongoing pandemic associated with the coronavirus…”
The 2020 dividend resolution included similar phrasing and justification for increasing the per share dividend amount beyond the revenue-based formula, too.
