SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation (EVC) ("Entravision" or the "Company"), a diversified global media and advertising technology company serving Latino consumers, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of $0.05 per share of the Company's Class A, Class B and Class U common stock, in an aggregate amount of approximately $4.5 million. The quarterly dividend will be payable on March 29, 2019 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 20, 2019, and the common stock will trade ex-dividend on March 19, 2019. The Company currently anticipates that future cash dividends will be paid on a quarterly basis; however, any decision to pay future cash dividends will be subject to approval by the Company's Board of Directors.
The Company also announced that it expects to file a notification of late filing on Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which provides an automatic 15-day extension of the filing deadline for its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the "Form 10-K"), to April 2, 2019. As a result of the Company's expanding business operations and geographical scope, including related to the acquisition of Headway and other digital businesses, the Company has experienced unexpected delays in its completion of the audit of its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018. The Company currently anticipates the Form 10-K will be filed within the 15-day extension period and the Company expects, as soon as practicable, to announce the timing of a conference call to discuss its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.
