* In 2006, the Bank’s board of directors approved a dividend schedule transition plan to declare and pay dividends after net income is calculated. The dividend based on net income and average capital stock balances outstanding for the second quarter 2006 was declared in the third quarter 2006 and grossed up to an equivalent accrual period for 183 days – the number of days in the second and third quarters. Accordingly, the effective annual yield of this dividend (declared in the third quarter of 2006, but as applied to the second quarter of 2006) was 11.06 percent. By the end of 2006, the Bank declared dividends based on a day-count accrual of a full 365 days. Read the Bank's letter to members and letter on the dividend schedule transition plan.
