Shareholders can participate in a Dividend Reinvestment Plan and may elect to have cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional common shares, may purchase additional common shares by making optional cash payments, or may do both.
Below are several commonly asked questions and answers relating to the Dividend Reinvestment and Share Purchase Plan:
Who is eligible? Any holder of record of 25 shares or more.
How will the program benefit me? In place of receiving your dividends as you do now, we will, on your behalf, reinvest your cash dividend payments and purchase additional First Financial Bancorp shares in your name. Also, an optional feature of the plan permits you to make cash payments (minimum $100 – maximum $5,000 per quarter) for the purchase of additional shares.
Will there be a cost for participating in the plan? Yes. Click here for the schedule of fees.
How will I know the number of shares I hold? Following each purchase of additional shares, a statement of your account will be mailed to you at your address of record or you can view your share holdings at any time by signing into your shareholder account at Computershare Shareholder Services or by contacting Computershare at 1-800-368-5948.
What if I join, but later decide I prefer receiving my dividends by check or direct deposit? Participation in the plan is voluntary and may be terminated at any time. There could be, however, certain time restraints regarding the processing of a termination request should it fall on or near a dividend record date.
