C&F Financial Corporation Declares Quarterly Dividend and Authorizes Share Repurchase Program
TOANO, Va., Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The board of directors of C&F Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:CFFI) (the Corporation) has declared a regular cash dividend of 42 cents per common share, which is payable January 1, 2023 to shareholders of record on December 15, 2022. The board of directors of the Corporation continually reviews the amount of cash dividends per share and the resulting dividend payout ratio in light of changes in economic conditions, current and future capital requirements, and expected future earnings.
In addition, the board of directors has authorized a program, effective December 1, 2022, to repurchase up to $10 million of the Corporation’s common stock through December 31, 2023. Repurchases under the program may be made through privately negotiated transactions or open market transactions, including pursuant to a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 and/or Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and shares repurchased will be returned to the status of authorized and unissued shares of common stock. The timing, number and purchase price of shares repurchased under the program, if any, will be determined by management in its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including the market price of the shares, general market and economic conditions, applicable legal requirements and other conditions, and there is no assurance that the Corporation will purchase any shares under the program. The Corporation’s previous share repurchase program was last authorized by the board of directors in November 2021 for the repurchase of up to $10 million of the Corporation’s common stock and will expire on November 30, 2022. Under that program, beginning in December 2021, the Corporation has repurchased 85,574 shares of its common stock for an aggregate cost of $4.4 million.
