FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2013) - Trinity Bank, N.A. (
"The Board of Directors of Trinity Bank, N.A. is pleased to announce the bank's fourth cash dividend. The dividend of $.28 per share payable in October represents a 12% increase over the $.25 per share dividend that was paid in April, 2013."
"Since instituting dividends in 2012, Trinity has returned $2,168,525 to shareholders in the form of cash dividends. Even though the tax rate on dividends has increased dramatically since 2012, management and the Board continue to feel that it is necessary to provide some tangible return to shareholders."
"Trinity Bank remains extremely well-capitalized. This dividend will not limit the bank's ability to grow internally, expand geographically, or consider acquisitions. The Board will review the dividend policy again next spring when the operating results for the second half of 2013 are available."
