Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Posted on | Back to Posts

This notice is current as of April 15, 2020

We appreciate all the input we’ve received via social media, email and phone calls regarding COVID-19. This is a unique and challenging time for everyone—shareholders, businesses and local governments alike. COVID-19 is undoubtedly having an impact on BBNC and other businesses across Alaska and throughout the rest of the country. Until further notice, the BBNC offices are closed but we are monitoring all forms of communication.

BBNC’s long-term goal is to provide our shareholders with predictable and increasing dividends, and has done so since 1978. The foreseeable, negative financial impacts of COVID-19 are unquantifiable at this time. A distribution of $10.86 per share was issued to shareholders on March 6; the next distribution is currently planned for June 5,2020, at $11.70 per share.

We understand the hardships being faced across Bristol Bay and beyond. We are working with other Bristol Bay entities to assess the immediate needs of our communities, as well as monitoring State and Federal resources that can provide essential resources and services to shareholders living outside the region.

Please keep yourself safe and healthy during these difficult times; find tips and reliable information below.

BBNC will continue to keep shareholders updated as new information is available. Thank you for your continued support.

We’ve launched a new website to provide our region and Bristol Bay Native Corporation shareholders with resources and information related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Visit it here: Bristol Bay COVID-19 Response
