Quyana Cakneq to all Direct Deposit Shareholders!
About 25% of Calista Corporation Shareholders have signed up for direct deposit. That means more than 3,000 fewer pieces of paper are printed, and over 3,000 fewer envelopes are used, and over 3,000 fewer pieces of mail need postage. That saves a lot of trees. And reduces expenses for Calista.
Direct deposit for the 2016 Akilista dividend is expected to occur on Friday, November 18.
Paper checks will start mailing on Monday, November 21, as originally scheduled.
