Armanino Foods of Distinction, Inc. Announces Regular Quarterly Dividend

Yesterday, the company came into the news cycle following a fairly significant announcement and it may be a good time for investors to take a look into it. Armanino Foods announced yesterday that its Board of Directors had announced a regular quarterly dividend to the tune of as much as $0.03 a share.

More often than not, the announcement of a cash dividend leads to a move in the company’s stock but no such thing happened with the Armanino Foods stock. It is going to be fairly interesting to see if the Armanino Foods stock can actually make an upward move in the course of the coming days or not.

All shareholders of record as of July 8, 2022, are going to be entitled to the cash dividend, which is going to be distributed tentatively on July 30, 2022. In this regard, it is perhaps interesting to note that the quarterly dividend is the 88th straight quarter in which Armanino Foods paid out a cash dividend.

Other than that, Armanino Foods has also provided its shareholders with as many as 10 special dividends during the period. With the company’s recent performance and anticipation of strong performance in terms of sales as well as profits in the near term, Armanino Foods remains confident about its financial situation, as per Douglas R Nichols, the chairman of the board.

Key Quote
