Sealaska Announces Spring Distribution of $19.2 Million

As part of Sealaska’s continued investment in our communities and region, a spring 2024 distribution totaling $19.2 million will be issued to shareholders on Thursday, April 18. Sealaska’s board of directors approved the distribution at a meeting held in Juneau on Friday, April 12.

The upcoming distribution includes dividends totaling $4.5 million from Sealaska’s ocean-health business platform, $3.1 million from the Marjorie V. Young (MVY) Shareholder Permanent Fund and an additional $11.6 million in Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act Section 7(j) natural resource revenue sharing funds for shareholders with class B or C shares.

Please note that shareholders with class B or C shares will receive two separate payments: one from the Shareholder Settlement Trust inclusive of the dividend from operations and MVY Permanent Fund, and one from Sealaska to include the 7(j) portion.

“We are proud of the stability and diversity reflected across Sealaska’s businesses and investments,” said Executive Chair Joe Nelson. “This makes possible both distributions and an ever-growing variety of programs and benefits for our shareholders. Sealaska’s shareholders are at the center of all we do, and our focus on both people and planet is a path forward that will continue to strengthen this commitment.”

Sealaska intentionally focuses on stability and growth, keeping not just today’s shareholders in mind with our strategic planning and investment strategy, but all those yet to come. This balanced approach, along with intentional reinvestment back into businesses and communities, allows Sealaska to provide shareholder benefits, including distributions. The wide array of benefits offered by Sealaska support Elders, education, workforce development, cultural and language revitalization, community partnerships and more.

This distribution is the sixth made through the Sealaska Settlement Trust, which was passed by shareholder resolution at the 2021 annual meeting. Dividends through the Trust are non-taxable to shareholders. The 7(j) portion of payments to shareholders with Class B and C stock are taxable.

Sealaska shareholders will receive a spring distribution that includes:

  • $1.48 per share payment from Sealaska operations.
  • $1.02 per share payment from Marjorie V. Young Shareholder Permanent Fund.
  • Urban and At-Large shareholders will also receive an ANCSA Section 7(j) payment of $7.32 per share as part of their distribution payment.
