TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Superior Plus Corp. (“Superior”) (TSX:SPB) today provided an update to its quarterly cash dividend policy. As previously communicated and subject to approval of future common share dividends by the Board of Directors, Superior intends to move from a monthly common share dividend payment to a quarterly common share dividend payment, following the monthly March 2023 dividend which is payable on April 17, 2023. Consistent with our current practice, quarterly dividend payments of $0.18 per share are expected to be declared to shareholders of record on the last day of March, June, September and December and paid on the 15th day of the month immediately following such record date. Should the dividend payment date fall on a weekend or on a statutory holiday, the dividend payment date will be the next succeeding business day following the weekend or statutory holiday.
Subject to approval by the Board of Directors, the first quarterly dividend on the common shares is expected to have a record date of June 30, 2023 and to be paid on July 17, 2023. Superior’s current annualized cash dividend of $0.72 per share is expected to remain unchanged.
