Item 8.01 Other Events—Announcing Increase in Cash Dividend provided under Items 7.01 and 8.01 of Form 8-K

On July 28, 2020, the Board of Directors of Community Trust Bancorp, Inc. declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.385 per share beginning with the October 1, 2020 payment to shareholders of record on September 15, 2020.  This represents an increase of 1.32% in the quarterly cash dividend.  CTBI’s increase in the cash dividend is less than previous increases as the Company recognizes the uncertainty of operating with the impact of COVID-19 on its customers and the U.S. economy.  With this uncertainty, CTBI made a substantial allocation to its allowance for credit losses during the first quarter of 2020 resulting in lower than expected earnings; however, CTBI experienced record earnings during the second quarter 2020.  We are pleased to currently operate with all of our capital measures greatly exceeding those required to be considered well-capitalized by regulators.  At June 30, 2020, we had a common equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 17.21% compared to a required 6.5%, a Tier 1 capital ratio of 18.93% versus the required 8.0%, a total capital ratio of 20.18% versus the required 10.0%, a  Tier l leverage ratio of 12.92% versus the required 5.0%, and a capital conservation buffer of 12.18%.
