Because of our successful financial performance in 2020, our board of directors approved the return of $11.4 million in cash to our stockholders.
Our patronage program is just one more reason it pays to do business with Louisiana Land Bank!
Patronage is another distinct benefit of doing business with a cooperative. As a customer and stockholder of Louisiana Land Bank, you share in the co-op’s earnings when it performs well.
Every year, the Louisiana Land Bank Board of Directors decides how much of our earnings must be maintained as capital to fund our growth and how much can be returned to customers through our patronage program. Patronage can be distributed in cash or as allocated equity.
The more business borrowers do with the co-op, the greater their patronage refund. It is our way of returning a portion of the interest our borrowers paid on their loans.
In March 2021, Louisiana Land Bank distributed $11.4 million in cash to stockholders through our patronage program based on the association’s 2020 earnings.
