GLENVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Board of Directors of TrustCo Bank Corp NY (TrustCo, Nasdaq: TRST) on November 15, 2022 declared an increase in the quarterly cash dividend of 2.9% to $0.36 per share, or $1.44 per share on an annualized basis. The dividend will be payable on January 3, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 2, 2022.
Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer Robert J. McCormick said: “Over the course of this year, we have celebrated a number of historic milestones surrounding Trustco Bank’s 120
anniversary. The company also has posted successive historic earnings for several quarters over the same period. These achievements are the product of a corporate strategy thoughtfully designed to amass liquidity in a down-interest-rate environment and strategically executed to position the Company to deploy that capital into higher yielding assets when interest rates increased. We are thrilled that the Company is able to not only continue, but enhance, its century-long commitment to paying a substantial dividend. Indeed, paying an above-average return to our owners is a part of our corporate mission statement and we are proud to fulfil that mission. This success also has fueled steady and sustained growth as we have invested in new technology and expanded our areas of operation.”
