Company Release - 12/20/2019 11:00 AM ET

WAUSAU, Wis., Dec. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PSB Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: PSBQ), parent company of Peoples State Bank, is pleased to announce that on December 17, 2019, its Board of Directors declared a regular semi-annual cash dividend of $0.20 per share of the Company’s common stock. The dividend is payable January 31, 2020 to shareholders of record as of January 10, 2020 and represents an increase of 11.1% over the $0.18 per share semi-annual cash dividend declared on December 18, 2018. The current dividend continues a 55-year tradition of cash dividends to PSB shareholders including 26 consecutive years of increased cash dividends declared per share.

PSB’s Board of Directors also renewed its regular quarterly common stock repurchase program allowing for the repurchase of up to 25,000 shares of common stock during the quarter ended March 31, 2020 as opportunities arise at prevailing market prices purchased on the open market or directly from shareholders. The extent of such repurchases are dependent upon market conditions and other corporate considerations. Year-to-date through December 19, 2019, 29,245 shares of common stock have been repurchased under the program at an average cost of $23.53 per share.

PSB President and CEO Scott M. Cattanach said, “Financial results continue to improve from a combination of higher loan and deposit generation along with increased mortgage banking fees, which has allowed us to continue to grow revenues. This is permitting us to return more dollars to shareholders and increase our capital levels as we pursue opportunities to further accelerate growth. We have noted an increased number of bidders in our stock, and exercised fewer share repurchases again this year. However, we are looking to acquire additional shares at fair prices as opportunities allow. We continue to consider opportunities to expand our footprint, which may require us to reallocate capital for other purposes.”
