Patronage Program

Lone Star Ag Credit is a customer-owned lending cooperative. That means we believe in giving back to the borrowers who make our success possible. As valued stockholders, they have the opportunity to share in our earnings.

Part of our mission and tradition is the paying of a patronage dividend. It is one of the core philosophies of our Board, and we are proud to be able to provide this return of value for our stockholders when circumstances permit. Every year, our board of directors decides how much of our earnings will be retained as capital to keep our institution strong for the future, and evaluates the institution's ability to pay a dividend to our eligible stockholders through our patronage program.

Lone Star Ag Credit is in the process of publishing new financials for 2016 and 2017 and intends to publish these by the end of April. The results of these restatements will impact our ability to pay patronage. Our Board desires to pay a dividend this year, even if it's at a reduced level, but it is possible that circumstances will not allow any payment to be distributed. Lone Star Ag Credit will work diligently to pursue the best possible outcome for the benefit of Stockholders.
