Calgary, Alberta, June 13, 2022 – Parkland Corporation (“Parkland”) (TSX:PKI) announces that a dividend of $0.3250 per share will be paid on July 15, 2022 to shareholders of record on June 22, 2022. The dividend will be an 'eligible dividend' for Canadian income tax purposes. The ex-dividend date is June 21, 2022.
Enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan
Parkland's enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("Enhanced DRIP") allows shareholders to reinvest their cash dividends to purchase additional Parkland shares from treasury at a 2% per share discount to the average of the daily volume weighted average trading prices during the Pricing Period. For further details on the Enhanced DRIP and the Pricing Period, please visit www.parkland.ca/en/investors/dividends.
Shareholders who wish to enroll in the Enhanced DRIP must do so prior to the June 21, 2022 (ex-dividend date) to reinvest this month’s dividend in Parkland shares at a discount.
Use of Funds
The Enhanced DRIP allows Parkland to retain amounts that would otherwise be paid to shareholders as dividends in cash, thereby incrementally raising equity capital which may be used by Parkland to, among other things, fund its capital program, fund acquisitions, build new locations and upgrade existing locations: all of which help contribute to Parkland’s growth and ability to execute on its strategy.
Shareholders who own their shares through a brokerage and who wish to participate in the Enhanced DRIP should ensure they are enrolled by checking their online brokerage portal or by calling their investment advisor.
Shareholders who hold certificates in their own name (registered shareholders) who wish to enroll can find out more from Computershare by calling 1-800-564-6253.
Copies of the Plan and the enrollment form are also available on Parkland's website at http://www.parkland.ca/en/investors/dividends/.
Brokerage entitlement and corporate actions departments are encouraged to ensure that they have properly elected with Clearing and Depository Services Inc. (“CDS”) those shares that should participate in the enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan.
