ARCOS DORADOS ANNOUNCES STOCK DIVIDEND PAYMENT

 

Montevideo, Uruguay, July 6, 2020 – Arcos Dorados Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ARCO) (“Arcos Dorados” or the “Company”), Latin America’s largest restaurant chain and the world’s largest independent McDonald’s franchisee, today announced that it will distribute a stock dividend in lieu of the two remaining cash dividend payments for 2020.

 

In order to continue prioritizing the Company’s cash position during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, on July 6, 2020, the Board of Directors cancelled the two remaining cash dividend payments of US$0.03 cents per share each, scheduled for August 13 and December 10, 2020.

 

Maintaining its commitment to provide shareholders an additional return in 2020, also on July 6, the Board of Directors approved a stock dividend distribution to all Class A and Class B shareholders. On August 12, 2020, the Company will distribute a dividend of one (1) share for every seventy-five (75) shares held by its shareholders of record at the close of business on August 3, 2020. The Company will pay cash in lieu of fractional shares and will use the Class A Shares’ closing price on the New York Stock Exchange on July 31, 2020 to calculate the cash payment.
