2023 Spring Distribution

(Anchorage, Alaska) – Calista Corporation’s largest-ever Shareholder distribution of $11 million will occur on or before April 14. This distribution is nearly 13 percent larger than last year’s spring distribution of $9.8 million.

The average Shareholder who owns 100 shares will receive an estimated $283. This is a 9 percent increase from last year, despite the 1,200 new Shareholders who enrolled in the past year.
