ATLANTA, Oct. 30, 2009 - The Board of Directors of Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the Bank) has approved an annualized dividend rate for the third quarter of 0.41 percent. The Bank also announced that it will not repurchase activity-based excess capital stock outstanding as of the end of the third quarter of 2009. The Bank will continue to evaluate on a quarterly basis whether to repurchase excess capital stock.
The dividend rate is equal to average three-month LIBOR for the period of July 1, 2009 to Sept. 30, 2009, and is applicable to capital stock held during that period. The dividend will be credited to members’ daily investment accounts at the close of business on Nov. 2, 2009.
“The Bank is pleased to provide a return on our members’ investment,” said Richard A. Dorfman, President and Chief Executive Officer, FHLBank Atlanta. “The dividend and excess capital stock repurchase decisions continue to reflect the Bank’s conservative financial management approach as credit markets stabilize and improve.”
