CRESTVIEW HILLS, KENTUCKY, September 26, 2012 –The Board of Directors of The Bank of Kentucky Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: BKYF) voted on September 21, 2012 to change from a semi-annual cash dividend to a quarterly cash dividend, commencing with the fourth quarter of 2012.
In commenting on the Board’s action, President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert W. Zapp stated, “We have traditionally paid dividends to our stockholders on a semi-annual basis. However the Board now believes that it is important to pay our stockholders more frequently and accordingly unanimously voted to change to a quarterly dividend.”
